StormFiber, a leading provider of Internet, Television and Telephony (FTTH) services in Pakistan, announced the rollout of IPv6 to all fiber-optic broadband customers in 13 major cities. This is an important step in Pakistan’s ISP industry and is an important step in meeting the growing number of users across Pakistan.

Pv6 is the next generation Internet Protocol (IP) industry standard intended to eventually replace IPv4, the protocol still used by many Internet services today. When there are many users on the network, every mobile phone, computer, and device connected to the Internet needs an IP address to communicate over the Internet.
The original IPv4 system, IPv4, used a 32-bit addressing system to support 4.3 billion addresses that were completely devastated.

As a result, existing service providers use carrier technologies such as network address translation (NAT), and as a result, some Internet services cannot work.

IPv6 uses a 128-bit addressing system to support approximately 340 trillion addresses. According to the latest reports, the number of IoT devices this year will reach about 46 billion, which is 200% more than in 2016, and it is expected to surpass 125 billion by 2030.

ISPs now need to use IPv6 on the network more than ever. The benefits of IPv6 include automatic configuration and efficient routing of network operators.

This makes it easy for customers to remotely access their IPv6-enabled devices without having to go back to the network. Major content partners Google, Facebook and Akami also use IPv6 for content delivery.

Danish. Lakhani, CEO ofCyber Internet Services said, “We are committed to building critical parts of Pakistan’s Internet infrastructure and enabling our citizens to connect to the Internet in the fastest and most secure way – with minimal latency.”

StormFiber CEO Fawad Laher added: “In recent years, we have seen unprecedented growth in network traffic. IPv6 is essential for the continued growth of the Internet, connecting devices and people around the world. This is an important step in ensuring continuous operation.
