With last years’ revelations about IPv4 running out, the need for IPv6 has been well documented and has been the cause of much debate, particularly within the tech community. We at Dyn have created an infographic which depicts the importance of IPv6, and also the importance of being prepared and understanding it. Many still believe that IPv6 is a replacement for IPv4 and that they are interchangeable, which is not the case. IPv4 and IPv6 run parallel to each other and, as such, the need to be prepared shouldn’t be underestimated. Some software and routers will need to be changed to support IPv6, so understanding the details is of paramount importance.
