Implementation of Enterprise IPv6 Network with Auto Addressing & Security Configuration
The current Internet Protocol, version 4, known as IPv4, poses several problems such as impending exhaustion of its address space, configuration and complexities due to rapid growth of the Internet and emerging new technologies. As a result, IETF developed the next generation IP called IPv6, to not only eliminate the shortcomings of IPv4 but also deliver new features and services.IPv6 has established itself as the most mature network protocol for the future Internet, over the last decade. The IPv6 defines mechanisms to auto-configure interfaces of nodes in wired networks in a distributed manner.
