Today, June 6, 2012, welcomes the latest version of the internet, IPv6.
In 1983 when the internet was launched, it was considered an experiment. For that experiment, space for 4.3 billion addresses was allocated. In simple terms, in order for your computer or mobile device to search the internet, you need an address. Today, there are over 5.5 billion mobile devices alone that need internet addresses.
In 1996, a different format of the internet was designed. IPv6 allows for 340 trillion trillion trillion addresses. Today, the IPv6 capability is turned on. So continue the experiment called the internet!
