Comparative Study of IPv4 and IPv6 in Wired Network
A rapid growth of IP-based networks and services created the vast collection of resources. At the same time, advances in design of mobile electronic devices allowed them to reach utility level comparable to stationary, desktop computers, while still retaining their mobility advantage. These transitioning techniques dual stacks, tunneling and translation solutions that enable the gradual introduction of IPv6 support into an existing IPv4 infrastructure. Unfortunately, the base IPv4 protocol does not perform very well in stationary environments, due to lack of security and packet loss. In this paper, they present an overview of the most popular and promising methods of performance of both IPv4 and IPv6 in wired networks.
