IP-Converge Enhances Services by Implementing IPv6

Internet data center, telecommunications and cloud services provider IP Converge Data Services, Inc. recently announced that its network infrastructure now supports the use of IPv6 (Internet protocol version 6) for customers’ Internet connectivity requirements. The new Internet protocol allows the allocation of more IP addresses to various devices and is said to enhance the quality of service of Internet providers that use it.

An IP address is a numerical label assigned to a device (e.g., computer, printer) connected to a computer network and uses Internet Protocol for communication. This label has gone through various designs and architecture since the dawn of the Internet. Currently, the most widely used version is a 32-bit number (or four sets of 8-bit numbers) known as IPv4. However, large commercialization and individual usage of the web over the past few years has resulted in the near-exhaustion of IPv4 addresses. Hence, it is imperative for providers to shift towards the next generation Internet protocol, IPv6.
