Abstract (Summary)

The ever increasing demand for Internet connected devices has lead to the situation where we are running out of the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. The proposed solution to this problem is an advance from IPv4 to the IPv6 Internet Protocol.

Several studies are in place, which predict that with IPv6 in place, every device on our planet will get an IP address, but the overhead caused by IPv6's larger packet size and larger IP addresses, will lead to an extra burden on the intermediate devices between client and server. This may result in increased network congestion and hence may lead to poor overall network performance.

In this thesis, we investigate the performance difference between IPv4 and IPv6 in a realistic, small-scale client server network model. A network traffic generator is used to generate realistic traffic across the network, and the attention is given to maintaining consistent parameters across all the scenarios.
