The Second Internet: Reinventing Computer Networks with IPv6

“The Second Internet: Reinventing Computer Networks with IPv6”, by Lawrence E. Hughes, is available for free in PDF format.


Most things in computer technology evolve through various releases or generations, with significant new features and capabilities in the newer generations. For example, 2G, 2.5G and 3G cell phones. The Internet is no exception. The remarkable thing though, is that the first generation of the Internet has lasted for 27 years already, and we are only now coming to the second generation of it. There are a number of technology trends going on right now, and some of them have been hyped heavily in the press. Some of them sound a lot like they might be the next generation of the Internet. Let’s see if we can narrow down what I mean by “the Second Internet” by discussing some the things that it is not.
