Internet Protocol version 6, more commonly IPv6, is the newest Internet Protocol that replaces the original Internet Protocol (IP).

IPv6 is designed to solve many of the problems of IPv4 and make possible new features and capabilities. This includes a much larger address space, improved support for mobile devices and other usage scenarios, and simpler configuration.

An IPv6 address is a 128-bit binary number with the address prefix as the first 64 bits and the interface ID as the last 64 bits.

IPv6 uses 128-bit (2128) addresses, allowing 3.4 x 1038 unique IP addresses. This is equal to 340 trillion trillion trillion IP addresses. IPv6 is written in hexadecimal notation, separated into 8 groups of 16 bits by the colons, thus (8 x 16 = 128) bits in total.

The benefits of IPv6 have increased security, faster data transmission rates, additional functionality, and the ability to assign more addresses without running out.
