Rabindra Dhungel, 22 august 2020. By the end of this fiscal year, WorldLink will be bringing all its customers to IPv6. The company has made its plan public with the objective of providing quality internet service to the customers. Every device connected to the Internet needs an IP address to communicate with each other. This is a number called Internet Protocol (IP) Address.
This address is provided by the Internet Assignment Number Authority (IANA) to all Internet Service Providers. There are two versions of IP address. One is IP version four (IPv4) and the other is IP version six (IPv6). The initial version IPV Forum has 4.3 billion public addresses. Due to which its quota ended on April 15, 2011. As a result, most Internet service providers now rely on Network Address Translation (NAT) technology for the use of private addresses to address the problem of lack of Public V4.
The latest version of this protocol is IPv6. There are so many IP addresses in IPV Six that will never end. As a result, it has the ability to assign separate routable addresses to each device connected to the Internet in the future. Since it does not require NAT technology, it has better Internet access than the IPv4 in the IPv6.
Currently, content service providers like Google and Facebook also provide content on Ivy Six. Which every internet service provider is passing on to its users. Now that both V6 and V4 are enabled in the device’s ecosystem, browser applications on the user’s device automatically prioritize V6.
WorldLink is the first Internet service provider in Nepal to enable IPV6 in July 2019. Few ISPs in the world have enabled it. By going to V6 we can provide better internet service to the customer and make it easier for the service providers to troubleshoot the customer remotely. Now that Nepal is moving to the Internet of Things (IoT) along with the rest of the world, this kind of preparation to make it bigger can be considered as a sign of great development.
According to WorldLink, out of the company’s four lakh customers, one lakh 55 thousand have already joined the Six Protocol network. Six users use 165 GB of Internet traffic, which accounts for 20 percent of the total Internet traffic delivered by WorldLink.
According to the Asia-Pacific Network Information Center (APNIC), Google and Facebook currently have about 26 percent of the world’s networks in the Six. Similarly, 11 percent of Nepal’s network has gone IPV Six. Worldlink has contributed the most. Not only has it made the Internet faster and wider, it has also helped increase Internet security. It will also make it easier for government and regulatory bodies to track illegal activity, which is why it is so difficult to track activity in the IPV forum due to the network address translation NAT.
