- Workshop on IPv6 Technology
The Students from the Dept. of ECE, witnessed an awe-inspiring technical talk followed by a hands on session on IPv6 Technology, on 14th June 2014. Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the latest version of the Internet Protocol (IP), the communications protocol that provides an identification and location system for computers on networks and routes traffic across the Internet.
The main advantage of IPv6 is larger addressing space. In particular, it permits hierarchical address allocation methods that facilitate route aggregation across the Internet, and thus limit the expansion of routing tables. The use of multicast addressing is expanded and simplified, and provides additional optimization for the delivery of services. Device mobility, security, and configuration aspects have been considered in the design of the protocol.
A team led by Baldev Krish from ‘128 Bits’ Bangalore (an A2B2 IT Services venture) gave useful insights on to issues related to IPv4 and the need for migration in to IPv6 technology on all the domains.
The lab session conducted by the team was also very useful for the students especially logging into cisco routers, assigning hostnames and checking the connectivity between two routers both in IPv4 and in IPv6. The students from both BTech and MTech attended the technical session led by teachers in charge from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM in seminar hall, II Block.
