Executive Summary

In the early days of the development of networks, major issues with addressing were ignored in favor of simple -- and adequate -- solutions. Unfortunately, addressing architecture hasn't kept pace with network growth. This sample chapter from Patterns in Network Architecture: A Return to Fundamentals offers a detailed look at how addressing architecture has evolved, from ARPANET and the early Internet through the development of IPv6.
