Your IPv4-Address:

Everything about IPv6

Over the last few years, IPv6 has been introduced to complement the current standard for Internet addresses IPv4.

This change is due to the rapid growth of the Internet and the need to ensure that all companies, Internet users, and IP devices can be provided with an online presence and access to the Internet.

At all stages, LANCOM customers will have access to both "versions" of the Internet, which are sure to coexist for a long time to come. Moreover, LANCOM will actively support its customers by providing comprehensive information on all important topics.

Our techpapers on migration and tunnel technologies will give you an overview about the most important technical information for each topic.

During the migration process, access to IPv6 will initially be possible with tunneling technologies until all components provide native support of IPv6.

IPv6 addresses are 128 bits in length, four times longer than IPv4 addresses:

Example of an IPv6 address: 2001:db8:0000:0000:0000:54f3:dd6b:1/64
