IPv6 deployment. (English)
IPv4 exhaustion leads to new IP version, which is IPv6. When changing a network from IPv4 to IPv6, Internet networks will be hybrid by using both IPv4 networks and IPv6 networks. This thesis defines the essential information about compatibility between IPv4-IPv6 mechanisms. Dual Stack is one of the IPv4-IPv6 compatible mechanism by running both IPv4 stack and IPv6 stack in a single node. 6 to 4 tunneling mechanism encrypts IPv6 packets in IPv4 packets to make communications possible, from IPv6 network over IPv4 network. Dual Stack & Tunneling mechanisms were completely implemented later in this thesis work. This thesis examine transmission latency, throughput, jitter and delay from end to end, through empirical observations of both Dual Stack and tunneling mechanisms by using TCP/UDP as transport protocols in different scenarios. This thesis work contains some useful strategic point of view before trying to deploy IPv6 in a network.
