IPv6 with Synnefo


The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) recognized this nearly 25 years ago. In 1998, it created IPv6, which instead uses 128-bit addressing to support approximately 340 trillion trillion (or 2 to the 128th power). Instead of the IPv4 address method of four sets of one- to three-digit numbers, IPv6 uses eight groups of four hexadecimal digits, separated by colons.

The Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) is the final version of the Internet Protocol (IP) in the IPv6/IPv4 protocol suite that is still in use.


What are the benefits of IPv6?

The IETF not only added more address space, it included enhancements to IPv6 compared with IPv4. The IPv6 protocol can handle packets more efficiently, improve performance and increase security. It enables internet service providers to reduce the size of their routing tables by making them more hierarchical.


Why Is IPv6 Important In the future?

IPv6 is important for the future of the internet for a few reasons. One reason is that it provides more addresses than the current system, IPv4. This is important because as more and more devices are connected to the internet, we need more addresses to avoid running out.


With IPv6 Say No To…..

  • Expensive CGNAT Devices.
  • CGNAT Logs for Cybercrime queries.
  • Shortages of IP’s.
  • Additional CPU Overhead on Edges/BRAS/BNG Devices.


What Synnefo Provides

1. Synnefo and IPv6 can be a great dual stack for any company.
2. Creation and deletion IPv6 pools from admin portal.
3. Each device in the LAN can get a public IP.
4. Single report of IPDR can help with DOT compliance.
