Every host must have access to at least one connection to the network within the whole network that can be exclusively recognized via a universally unique IP address. Once the IP addresses reach their extinction, more nodes to the network cannot be added. IPv4 has the limit of about 4,000 million unique Internet addresses, but in real life IPv4 can only support a sustainable population of just about 250 million exclusive addresses. To help guarantee the constant and everlasting progress of the Internet as a stage for modernization and novelty, The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has developed IPv6, the next version of the IP family to come up a solution to the IPv4 address exhaustion which was projected and predicted long ago.
