Infographic: Understanding The Need For IPv6

Why Should I Care About IPv6?

You may have heard of IPv6, but do you understand why we need it? We have IPv4 after all, right? Well, unfortunately IPv4 addresses are running out. Luckily for us, there are enough IPv6 addresses available to theoretically never run out (seriously, there are 11 quintillion more addresses PER PERSON available than there are IPv4 addresses in total) and it even has some great security upgrades to boot.

The infographic below explains a bit about IP addresses, how much time we have left with IPv4, and why we can’t just use IPv4 interchangeably with IPv6.
