This report contains the results of research by the Department of Business, Innovations and Skills (BIS) into the need to facilitate the migration in the Internet from the use of the IPv4 protocol to the IPv6 protocol, primarily because of the impending shortage of IPv4 addresses that will cause problems for the further growth of the Internet and a degradation of services for existing users. The report makes recommendations for the UK to build on to determine the direction to take. The Internet Protocol (IP) is the common language used over the Internet and it is running out if its equivalent of telephone numbers, called IPv4 addresses. A new version of the protocol IPv6 with much longer addresses and hence very much greater capacity has been developed and is starting to be introduced.
