Good news is IPv6 is 

launch today, i mean 6.6.2012. 
 
IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) is a version of the Internet Protocol (IP) intended to succeed IPv4, which is the communications protocol currently used to direct almost allInternet traffic.[1] IPv6 will allow the Internet to support many more devices by greatly increasing the number of possible addresses.
 
Logo for IPv6 released by the Internet Society. The Internet operates by transferring data between hosts in packets that are routed across networks as specified by routing protocols. These packets require an addressing scheme, such as IPv4 or IPv6, to specify their source and destination. Each host, computer or other device on the Internet must be assigned an IP address in order to communicate.
 
The growth of the Internet has created a need for more addresses than are possible with IPv4, which allows 32 bits for an IP address, and therefore has 232 (4 294 967 296) possible addresses. IPv6, which was developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to deal with this long-anticipated IPv4 address exhaustion, uses 128-bit addresses, allowing 2128 (approximately 3.4×1038) addresses.
 
This expansion can accommodate vastly more devices and users on the internet as well as providing greater flexibility in allocating addresses and efficiency for routing traffic. It also eliminates the primary need for network address translation (NAT), which has gained widespread deployment as an effort to alleviate IPv4 address exhaustion.

The huge advancement of the internet has shown its worth to government, academics, businesses, professionals, and individuals for the past ten years. The industry now depends on a variety of advantages from internet technology where major productivity gains have been seen. The internet or the World Wide Web and other internet-based applications presently use IPv4 or the version 4 of the Internet Protocol.

The version 6 of the Internet Protocol or IPv6 was developed by Internet Engineering Task Force. It was developed to find a way to an ominous lack of addresses under IPv4. That’s why there have been several technical fixes to support IPv4 and delay the need for a move to IPv6 including debate on whether it is really necessary to have IPv6.

That debate was now agreed to be over. Between 2011 and 2015, the free IPv4 address space was exhausted. For those building new large networks, the only actual reasonable option is to use IPv6. The use of IPv6 provides the possibility to construct a much more powerful internet with enormously larger scale than the current IPv4 have.

Addresses in IPv4 only have 32 bits which allows only about four billion addresses. While with IPv6, it provides addresses in 128 bits allowing some 340 trillion, trillion, trillion addresses. Aside from increasing the address space, the Internet Engineering Task Force also built additional features into the IPv6 specification.
