Internet Protocol Version 6 and Future Trends in ECE

A. Narrative Report
Experts realized that the Internet would eventually run out of address space with the original version of the Internet Protocol, known as IPv4 (IP version 4). In fact, some industry experts predict that there are only around 1,200 days left until the Internet runs out of IPv4 addresses. So the main solution is to create a new version of Internet Protocol intended to succeed IPV4 which is the IPv6 (IP version 6). The seminar focused on the transitioning from IPv4 to IPv6. As future electronics engineers, we are in need of knowing the new trends that fasten our field. The topic ‘Internet Protocol Version 6 and Future Trends in ECE’ is a big help for us because we are able to know what are the basics and differences of IPv6 from IPv4.

B. Technical Report
Pv4 is a connectionless protocol for use on packet-switched Link Layer networks. It operates on a best effort delivery model; in that it does not guarantee delivery, nor does it assure proper sequencing or avoidance of duplicate delivery. Since the 1980s, it was apparent that the pool of available IPv4 addresses was being depleted at a rate that was not initially anticipated in the original design of the network address system. The threat of exhaustion was the motivation for remedial technologies. Eventually, IPv6 was created, which has much more addresses available. IPv6 specifies a new packet format, designed to minimize packet header processing by routers. Because the headers of IPv4 packets and IPv6 packets are significantly different, the two protocols are not interoperable. However, in most respects, IPv6 is a conservative extension of IPv4. Most transport and application-layer protocols need little or no change to operate over IPv6; exceptions are application protocols that embed internet-layer addresses, such as FTP and NTPv3. IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) is a version of the Internet Protocol (IP) intended to succeed IPv4, which is the protocol currently used to direct almost all Internet traffic. The Future of Network Analysis with Full Visibility on Wired and Wireless Networks A. Narrative Report

Computer networks for the home and small business can be built using either wired or wireless technology. Both wired and wireless can claim advantages over the other; both represent viable options for home and other local area networks (LANs). Comparisons between wired and wireless networks were tackled in this seminar. Well of course, we all know that it is more reliable to use wired networks mainly because manufacturers have been continually improving Ethernet technology over several decades. That is why wired networks are always faster and never slower than wireless. But as of today, it is more comfortable to use wireless network as it has no limitations in terms of coverage area enclosed with wireless network. The seminar also tackles network analysis in conditions with ‘ethical hacking’.

B. Technical Report
There are two ways to connect a computer to a network: wired or wireless. Networks are built by adding a network interface card (if not already built-in) or other network adapter to your computer and then connecting that adapter to the medium--a wire or radio frequency--over which the data flows. Depending on your network topology, there may also be a central hub or router to which each of the computers connects. If the hub also routes data between the local network and another network (such as the Internet), it's called a router. When it comes to network performance, you'll see quite a bit of jargon relating to (theoretical) maximum speeds, which are measured in bits per second. First, some acronyms: Megabits per...
