June 25 - Day 3: The Backbone of IIoT: IPv.6

No matter what carriers are used in the physical layer of communications in the IIoT, there will need to be a robust, scalable, and universal addressing and communications backbone. Most implementers and experts agree that Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv.6) will be the backbone on which the IIoT will be built. Today's class will cover a quick overview of IPv.6 and its improvements and differences from the more familiar IPv.4 that is still the standard, particularly in embedded systems.
