    Short for Internet Protocol next generation, a version of the Internet
    Protocol (IP) reviewed in IETF standards committees to replace IP version 4.
    The official name of IPng is IPv6, where the v6 stands for version 6. The
    current version of IP is version 4, so it is sometimes referred to as IPv4.
    IPv6 is designed as an evolutionary upgrade to the Internet Protocol and
    will, in fact, coexist with the older IPv4 for some time. IPv6 is designed
    to allow the Internet to grow steadily, both in terms of the number of hosts
    connected and the total amount of data traffic transmitted.

    IPv6 has been around for some time now. The major difference is more
    efficient headers and using 128bits to represent the host, not 32, which
    basically allows for everything on the planet to have it's own IP address.
