The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) is going to hold an online workshop on the transition to IPv6 in India. This workshop will take place on July 27, 2022, and will start at 11 AM. It will be a two-hour thirty-minute workshop meaning it will end around 1:30 PM. For the unaware, there are two types of internet protocol in India right now. The first is the Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4), and the second one is IPv6. The IPv6 is obviously a more recent version. IPv4 is decades old and has many limitations.
One of the biggest limitations of IPv4, as explained by DoT, is the 32-bit addressing space resulting in 4.3 billion IP addresses. But with IPv6, there is 128-bit addressing space, meaning almost an infinite pool of IP addresses is possible. IPv6 also enables improved traffic routing.
The workshop will be addressed by many people from the telecom department. Things such as IPv6 implementation, awareness, deployment issues and challenges along with industry perspectives, followed by a discussion of 30 minutes, will be in the online workshop. This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to learn about IPv6 pretty fast.
