The advance of technology often requires the emergence of complementary technologies, of which the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 presents a significant example. The move of protocol has focused attention on the level of performance for associated technologies. Among the many Internet applications, in contemporary digital communications, VoIP stands apart in importance IPv4 address space are exhausted. Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) developed IPv6 -the upgrade of IPv4- to satisfy the continual increase of the IP address needs. The Internet is so ramified and enormous that the complete transition from IPv4 to IPv6 is slow. Therefore, their coexistence is inevitable.
