D-Link IPv6 Solutions

The move from IPv4 to IPv6 routing addresses the growing need for additional public IP addresses. Today, each new device on the Internet is assigned an IP address, and the number of available IPv4 addresses has nearly depleted.The European Commission encourages the rapid adaptation of IPv6 to keep Europe at the vanguard of Internet use. Support for IPv6 routing is important to securing the future of a network and is also essential to ensure the growth and development of tomorrow's Internet.

The Advantages of IPv6

One benefit of IPv6 is that it offers a new pool of IP addresses to ensure that there are enough available to facilitate this growing need and protect future investments. In addition to a vastly expanded address space, IPv6 offers a wide range of improvements, including:

  • Security enhancements 
  • Stateless autoconfiguration 
  • Superior mobility 
  • Enhanced subnet address management
  • Simplified network administration
  • Built-in multicasting
  • New QoS features
