In order to grow the world wide web, the society of internet paraphernalia is coming out with IPv6. It’s aim is to allow internet to seep in other devices and hence increasing the number of possible addresses. But moving from IPv4 to IPv6 ain’t that easy, plus the main question looms on transition costs and the time taken. After all, the internet is severing 2.5 billion people and 11 billion devices across the world and we are running out of space.
Although, most of the OS does support IPv6 but routers and servers have no provisions of supporting it. Which would further make the connection between the devices nearly impossible.
If we remember, CNN in 2010 did forecast about the limitations of IPv4 and it seems they were correct.
