DescriptionFrom University Video Communications' catalog:
"IPv6 (formerly IPng), developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), is designed to meet the scaling requirements imposed by the explosive growth of the Internet. It extends IPv4 through expanded addressing, automated configuration, support for multi-media, security, multicast, and mobility. This video explores the design rationale and how IPv6 designers met the challenges of blossoming applications, traffic types and devices. The new 128-bit address allows every telephone, personal computer, fax machine, electricity meter, money wallet, and home appliance on the planet to be connected. The talk concludes with a brief report on implementa-tions and interoperability testing."
