The core mandate of the development of IPv6 ideally has been to substitute and supplement IPv4 power as a salient principle of the present-day internet platform. Its birth is the desirable option to IPv4 since it can sustain the increased growth of applications and devices supporting the internet as well as unlock the security concerns posed by IPv4. Moreover, the deficiency and depletion of IPv4 pool of addresses and the dire requisite towards a strengthened generation of IP that is essentially dependable and secure. These are the reasons why IPv6 deployment has become urgent with emphasis on secure, larger address space, and better performance. The main point of this paper is about the peculiarities of IPv6 from a transition perspective and its performance differences compared to IPv4. The current state of IPv6 usage, IPv4 to IPv6 transition strategies/mechanisms, routing and optimization/performance perspective of this new protocol is the concern.
