“The end is nigh”, the Internet doomsayers say. There are only so many IP addresses that can be allocated to devices, and we have run out! My talk will be on the solution to this problem: Internet Protocol Version 6. I’ll start by clueing you up on what exactly Internet Protocol is, progressing to learning about the current version of the protocol, IPv4 and how IPv6 offers a significant improvement over IPv4. I’ll talk about the transition between the two which is ongoing and fraught with difficulties at the moment. IPv6 is exciting in the fact that it connects us directly and brings us closer to the Internet that was first envisioned. There are many challenges ahead for the Internet and IPv6 is at the heart of it.
