To send and receive information over the Internet, computers and other devices need a unique address—called an IP address. The current system that provides addresses is IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4), and has been in use for the past 30 years.
As the Internet has grown, the number of available IPv4 addresses has slowly been exhausted. To accommodate the growing number of Internet users, a new Internet Protocol was required.
IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) is the next-generation Internet Protocol, designed to replace IPv4. In addition to providing the needed addresses, IPv6 includes new security features to protect sensitive information.

Viewqwest operates a dual-stack network (Ipv4 & Ipv6 together) that directly connects to peers
and upstream carriers over IPv6. We are one of the first networks in Singapore with full IPv6 connectivity available to our Fibernet customers.
All Viewqwest FTTH,NGNBN and Colocation services support access to the Internet via IPv6, enabled by default for new customers. Customers are presented with a dual-stack configuration which enables them to have native access to both the IPv4 and IPv6 Internet.
