Describe IPv6 addresses.
In the early 1990s, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) grew concerned about the exhaustion of the IPv4 network addresses and began to look for a replacement for this protocol. This activity led to the development of what is now known as IPv6. Today’s review focuses on an overview of the IPv6 protocol and IPv6 address types.
If you have not yet purchased a copy of Rick Graziani’s IPv6 Fundamentals to add to your library of study tools, now is the time to do so. His book is my definitive source for everything IPv6.
