◎◎◎ About the Webinar ◎◎◎
There are many debates discussing whether IPv6 addresses will replace IPv4 addresses completely. Unfortunately, there is no definite answer. Some experts believe that IPv6 will replace IPv4 in five or ten years. Others predict a much longer timeframe.
John Sweeting (CCO at ARIN), Lee Howard (SVP at Hilco Streambank), Paul Rendek (Director at Dstream Group), Jack Beech (VP of Business Development at IPXO) and Vincentas Grinius (CEO at IPXO) discuss the future of IPv4 and IPv6 in a recent IPXO webinar.
First, John Sweeting shares his insights on the history of IPv4 and the failed employment of IPv5, a version that was never publicly announced.
Sweeting also emphasizes that since the beginning of IPv4, everyone thought that 4.29 billion addresses would be enough. No one saw the scarcity coming. Eventually, due to impending exhaustion, quick solutions were needed to conserve the use of IPv4. One of them was to employ IPv6.
As Lee Howard suggests, the growth of IPv6 and IPv4 over time is linear and correlates with the development of the internet. If someone uses IPv4, it does not mean they use IPv6 or vice versa. He also provides insights on technical issues with IPv6 allocation and suggests that the main challenge will be to customize consumer electronics. Nonetheless, according to Howard, IPv4 will never go away.
Paul Rendek suggests that IPv6 was ignored when it was first created. Before the full exhaustion of IPv4, IPv6 was available, but organizations continued using IPv4 instead. Rendek also notes that IPv4 prices are not yet high enough to push companies to start employing IPv6 on a larger scale. According to Rendek, while we can see a significant growth in IPv6 use in Asia, other regions are slower to adapt.
IP transferring is highlighted as another solution to IPv4 exhaustion.
Jack Beech also shares his thoughts on leasing IPs and how that may drive a different market and different pricing. Leasing is highlighted as a solution for those who may not want to sell their resources.
Beech agrees with Howard stating that IPv6 and IPv4 will coexist in the future. He also adds that with the increased adoption of IPv6, more IPv4 addresses are likely to enter the transfer market.
Vincentas Grinius then discusses the growing IPv4 prices and how they change in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Grinius, the growth directly correlates with digital businesses’ transformations and people working remotely.
Grinius concludes the webinar by observing that companies with large pools of IPv4s will keep the resource as a strategic asset that can bring in a recurring source of revenue in the future.

✓ To compare IPv4 vs. IPv6, we need to look at how these Internet Protocols emerged, what benefits they offer and what the main differences between IPv4 and IPv6 are.
✓ IPv6 adoption has been a big topic in the industry since IPv6 inception. Internet Protocol version 6 is a communication protocol that enables sending and receiving packets of information. Billions of internet-connected devices, including personal computers or mobile devices, rely on IPv6.
