The Internet has operated for nearly 40 years thanks to the IPv4 protocol. This system has servered very well so far, but the enormous growth of the Internet has resulted in an ever increasing demand for addresses, which IPv4 cannot accommodate. The global Internet has used up most of its availible addresses.

The eventual exhaustion of IPv4 addressing has led to the introduction of a more future proof protocol known as IPv6. This system is now in use, alongside IPv4, but they are, for the most part, not interoperable. The gradual migration of IPv4 networks onto the IPv6 protocol will take some time, so they will co-exist into the near future. During this intermediate stage in Internet developement networks face many challenges like IPv4 exhaustion, dual-stack environments and a learning curve for IPv6 operations.

IP-Max has a deep expertise in managing IPv6 enviroments. If you are in need of solution or just looking to get started with IPv6, IP-Max is here to help.
