Why IPV6?

The current operational Internet, is based on a legacy IPv4 (Internet Protocol Version 4) designed originally to connect 4.3 Billion nodes in an "end-to-end model". With the explosion of Internet services, connected devices & websites, then the ticking clock started, many years ago, to indicate a sharp shortage in the IP supply against the uncalculated demand especially when (1) Billions of Smart phones came into the Internet-Connected-Operational scenery, & (2) The world movement into a "unified communications platforms" based on IP (Internet). For this, the ISPs (Internet Service Providers) struggled to find Prosthesis solutions to assault the IP-Shortage dilemma. One of the most famous ISPs adopted-solutions, as a temporary remedy, is called NAT (Network Address Translation), which is gathering many (depending on ISP network size) users into a single IP, against the originally designed Internet scheme: A single IP / User. The consequences of this Prosthesis solution is delay congestion and evolving security breaches (attackers can hide and hardly be traced behind NAT). As of today stats, approximately 11 Billion nodes (3 Billion PCs + 7 Billion Mobile Phones + 1 Billion websites) are connected to a legacy Internet that is designed to accommodate 4.3 Billion nodes max. Cleary IPv4 is NO more suitable for networks expansion due to its IP depletion, congestion, and delay & security flaws (hackers are all around to exploit the current Internet weakness). The ONLY solution ahead to all current Internet problems is the adoption of the Next Generation Internet Protocol, IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6). IPv6 provides huge IP resiliency (340 Billion Billion Billion Nodes) & enhanced security milestones. Globally: Countries, Governments, ISPs, Net Operators, Academia & Enterprises are rushing to plan, migrate & deploy IPv6 to enable & accommodate everything on the near-future revolutionary IP-Based (Internet-Based) technological trends that will include huge & numerous converged services, platforms & applications: e.g.: IoT (Internet of Things): A global Internet (IP-Platform)-Based for connecting all devices: Cars, Home Appliances, Energy Sensor, Smart Cities Grids, etc. to the Internet; SDN (Software Defined Networks); Cloud Computing): Networks that offer the user huge flexibilities & Symbolic prices in cloud-based storage & applications, e.g. Apple Cloud, DropBox,; 5G (5th Generation Platforms): Which is 100 times faster than the previous generations; NFV (Network Functions Virtualization), etc.

These huge & high-tides technological trends are IP-Hungry demanding. It is expected that 50-100 Billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020. On a global level, it became impossible to promote the technological trends flux without "IPv6-Merging & Overlapping" in mind, while IPv6 is a "Future core component for all”. For this IPv6 is NO more an "If Option". It is a MUST Inevitable process that will rescue & re-scale the current Internet. The time for IPv6 is really now, the sooner is the better to avoid isolation lands (for those who will stick to IPv4 and will be blind-seeing when IPv6 networks & services is fully operational by 2020 on a global level).
