IPv6 Network

An IPv6 Network is the latest evolution of its predecessor, the IPv4 network. In both cases, the routing prefix, or network’s address, is the leading set of bits of the addresses, which are the same for all hosts within a network.

IPv6 networks evolved from IPv4 Internet Protocols. While IPv4 addresses are defined as 32-bit numbers, IPv6 allows for 128 bits. An Ipv6 network provides customers with increased flexibility, greater interoperability, more efficient networks, latest technologies, and an enhanced ability for networks to exchange traffic within that environment.
