The article focuses on Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). Among other things, the 128-bit replacement for the 32-bit IPv4 provides a vast amount of new IP numbers--a sufficient quantity to give every molecule on earth its own network address. By the end of 2010, every new phone, appliance and consumer electronics device will probably require its own IP address. IPv6 necessitates an upgrade of routers and other Internet backbone equipment which is already underway; consumers will start enjoying the technology's benefits through 2008 as it spreads throughout the Internet and to consumer electronics.
