Today is IPv6 day! 🙂
Thus, we found a few interesting facts that you should know about IPv6. Here they are:
1. According to mathematicians IPv6 is capable of delivering 340,300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, that’s over three hundred and forty duodecillion IP’s.
2. IPv6 is 128bit based which can generate enough IP addresses that can power generations of regular internet users and the technology enthusiasts around the globe.
3. In practicality, IPv6 is expected to create over 18 trillion IP addresses. Worried? Don’t be. With 18 trillion IP’s, every living person on this planet can be assigned over 3000 dedicated IP’s each.
4. IPv6 could provide each and every square micrometer of the earth’s surface with 5,000 unique addresses. What’s a micrometer? About one tenth the diameter of a droplet of fog!
