While it is true that IPv6 offers vastly more address space than IPv4, this space is not unlimited and there remain similarities in the way this space needs to be managed. There will continue to be a need for:
  • a guarantee that addresses used in a public environment will be unique worldwide;
  • neutral bodies allocating address space according to documented need and on the basis of policies set by a community of all stakeholders;
  • measures to avoid stockpiling or hoarding of IPv6 addresses in anticipation of future gain; and
  • an optimum address aggregation by managing IP addresses in a manner consistent with needs of providers, facilitating their services while helping in the optimization of the size of routing tables.
