Muhammad Shahzad Haroon, Husnain Mansoor Ali


Vol. 17  No. 12  pp. 151-157


IPv4 addresses are almost consumed and IPv6 adoption has increased in recent years. Migrating to IPv6 needs transition from IPv4 to IPv6 but this process is facing challenges. Stakeholders like ISPs and ICPs seem divided on immediate migration as they use different options rather than moving to IPv6. This paper investigates obstacles and complications in completely moving towards IPv6. These include identifying key factors that are still supporting IPv4 and contribute towards delay. The Pakistani market is specifically targeted and analysis is given about root causes delaying IPv6 adoption
