Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the latest version of the Internet Protocol (IP). IPv6 is intended to replace IPv4, which still carries more than 94% of Internet traffic worldwide as of December 2014. With the rapid growth of the Internet after commercialization in the 1990s, it became evident that far more addresses than the IPv4 address space has available were necessary to connect new devices in the future. By 1998, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) had formalized the successor protocol. IPv6 uses a 128-bit address, allowing 2128, or approximately 3.4×1038 addresses, or more than 7.9×1028 times as many as IPv4, which uses 32-bit addresses and provides approximately 4.3 billion addresses.
IPv6 provides other technical benefits in addition to a larger addressing space. In particular, it permits hierarchical address allocation methods that facilitate route aggregation across the Internet, and thus limit the expansion of routing tables.
In view of the Govt. of India's initiative to migrate all service providers and govt. bodies to IPv6, TIFR received a communication from DAE to migrate all the systems to IPv6 at the earliest.
TIFR CCCF is finalized the IPv6 scheme against each department VLAN. Requesting TIFR departments to extend their co-operation in the migration process of IPv6.
CCCF has coducted follwoing trainigs on IPv6 to the TIFR Departmental representatives and staff.
