Why was IPv6 introduced as the new version of the Internet Protocol?
With only 32 bit IP addresses, the older version could not support the large number of devices connecting to the Internet.
The new version features advanced techniques to redirect network traffic, making the Internet faster and easier to use.
While not available everywhere, the new version enables devices to access the Internet using personalized IP addresses.
The new version categorizes IP addresses, which makes them easier to remember and locate.
