It was a challenge to show how Internet Protocol version 6 is different from version 4, the one currently in use.

One way was to depict how the number of Internet address would increase, from 4.3 billion to 340 undecillion — an undecillion is a number followed by 36 zeroes. So I tried simply writing them out and it seemed to make the point.

The second part of the graphic displayed two use predictions of future Internet devices. IPv6 would handle both.

Michael Nelson, one of our IT analysts and a brilliant guy, did the story. He was invaluable with his knowledge and advice.
