Can you provide an overview to inform leadership on what IPv6 really is, its implications, and where tactical/strategic issues might arise?

“IP” is the Internet Protocol, the set of digital communication codes which underlies the Internet infrastructure. IP allows the flow of packets of data between any pair of points on the network, providing the basic service upon which the entire Internet is built. IPv6 is the “next generation” of IP, which provides a vastly expanded address space. CSIAC conducted open research and provided the inquirer with a general overview of what IPv6 is along with how it was developed as well as its benefits of use. The information provided was designed as an explanation for decision makers.
