Up to 340 Undecillion addresses can be associated with the successor version of IPv4, IPv6. The changeover from the old to the new protocol expires largely unnoticed for the user.

Since the two standards do not compatible are, companies such as Deutsche Telekom for example in bilingual technology, when both protocols are supported. The advantages of the new Protocol consist of, inter alia, enabling a higher quality of service for multimedia applications over Internet connections, such as IPTV.
