On Wednesday the net gets new addresses.

On this Wednesday the architecture of the Internet changes: Providers, managers of websites and producers of Internet devices worldwide activate the new address standard IPv6. The new online postal codes are valid as pioneers for the “Internet of things” and are to break open the shortage of IP addresses for the connection of PCs and cell phones to the data net. Instead of 4 billion now 340 undecillion addresses are possible. What does that mean for the user?

Up to now all devices mostly share one single IP address in a household, which is assigned to the DSL router or cable modem. The new standard IPv6 makes it possible to provide every device with its own IP address – for instance to be dialled directly. That is useful when the user wants to regulate the temperature in his apartment over his cell phone on the way. The old standard IPv4 offered too few addresses.

At best nothing changes for the Internet user. Actual devices and operating systems already understand IPv6.
