Role of IPv6™ in Microsoft® Windows® 7
IPv6 stands for Internet Protocol Version 6. It is a network layer protocol which facilitates easy data communication over a packet switched network. The packet switching process includes the sending as well as receiving of data in packets between two nodes in a network. The IPv6 is the replacement to IPv4 which was considered as the backbone of the modern Internet. It is known as the Next generation Internet with its expanded capabilities and growth through recent large scale deployments. One of the main advantages of the IPv6 is the increased address space. The 128-bit length of IPv6 address allows for an almost limitless number of unique IP addresses. Its big size makes it less vulnerable to malicious activities like IP scanning. IPv6 packets could support larger payload compared to its predecessors. This results in increased transport efficiency.
