It has been almost 10 years since IPv6 was supposed to become the de facto Internet of the world. Indifference and incomprehensive have prevailed. Many universities, organizations have not reached this goal yet. It is everybody’s hope and wish that soon, this will happen. The benefits that it has created and will keep bringing upon the whole world are numerous. Among those, the whole advent and evolution of Internet of Things (IoT) the Web of Things (WoT) and closer to us the advent of the 5G that organization is fighting for would not be possible without IPv6. Security has become tighter and more and more people are embracing the protocol. At the end of Obama administration every organization in the US should have been using it. Unfortunately this did not happen. We believe that now the time is right for IPv6 to come on board now.
