Analyst: Robin Whittle


We discuss some of the new features of IPv6 which enable automatic configuration of computers and other devices, which eases the burden of network renumbering and provides mechanisms for small devices to automatically connect themselves to networks, especially radio networks. However, these techniques are not sufficient to reliably renumber an entire network, as would be required when using Provider Aggregatable addresses and changing to another ISP.
