||Microsoft Internet Explorer V5.0 using Windows 98
||unfortunately IPv6 will not be enough
All your points are pertinent. But I think IPv6 will not provide enough IP adresses
and should not be considered as a solution to the IP adress shortage. |
be merely considered as a chance to test and stabilize a new adressing vision and
technology before the demand becomes to high. Let be clear: I run 20.000 internet
sites under a single IP adress. The problem is that eventually with the neuronal
growth of the internet, automatition and people's implication in the content management
these 20.000 sites will be handled by dedicated virtual or (and) real machines requiring
each of them their own IP adresse. And that I will need 100.000nds IP adresses for
me and my customers may be one to five years from now.
I therefore think the solutions
you propose for mobiles are a good base for a general numbering solution using more
and more gateways and dynamic like numbers or sub-numbers.
of the IPv6 is the geographical constraints. More and more contry laws will require
actions based upon the geographical origin/destination of a call (pornography, taxes,
nazi, etc..). If we want to avoid the nightmare of overlaps, or huge "origin bases",
IP numbering plan will have one way or another to reserve and therefore waste a lot
of addresses to comply with this (or a third party authority should enforce a geographical
information control within the IPv6.1 packet).
