The Network performance optimization, configuration depends on proper design of complete network. The network layer is concerned with getting packets from source all the way to destination. The packets may cross many networks to reach the destination. To achieve its goals, the network layer must know about the topology, communication subnets and the version of the IP addresses used. Considering the present scenario, the authors are using IP v4 which needs to communicate with IP v6. The present networks are using only IP version 4 it is necessary to design and deploy certain methods which will help in communicating with the future generation of IP addresses.
