Although the basic protocol of the Next-Generation Internet (NGI) was defined as IPv6 over 10 years ago, the transition from the current IPv4-based Internet to IPv6-based NGI is still a long way to go. With the growth of Internet, it is predicted that IANA will exhaust its IPv4 address pool on June 2011. Therefore, IPv6 networks and IPv6 applications are expected to be widely used in the coming days.

Abstract

Although the basic protocol of the Next-Generation Internet (NGI) was defined as IPv6 over 10 years ago, the transition from the current IPv4-based Internet to IPv6-based NGI is still a long way to go. With the growth of Internet, it is predicted that IANA will exhaust its IPv4 address pool on June 2011. Therefore, IPv6 networks and IPv6 applications are expected to be widely used in the coming days. However, IPv4 and IPv6 are difficult to inter-operate or even long-term coexist in the complex topology of Internet. After giving an overview of some basic IPv6 transition technologies in the literature, the talk will present the active work in IETF for IPv4/IPv6 coexistence. At last, the IPv6 progress in China will also be introduced.
