Verizon ip version 6

IP addresses are getting an upgrade.

On June 30, 2017, Verizon will stop issuing new Public Static IPv4 addresses due to a shortage of available addresses. Customers that currently have active Public Static IPv4 addresses will retain those addresses, and Verizon will continue to fully support existing Public Static IPv4 addresses. In order to reserve new IP addresses, your company will need to convert to the Persistent Prefix IPv6 requirements and implement new Verizon-certified IPv6 devices.

Why should you make the move to Persistent Prefix IPv6?

• Unlike IPv4, which is limited to a 32-bit prefix, Persistent Prefix IPv6 has 128-bit addressing scheme, which aligns to current international agreements and standards.

• Persistent Prefix IPv6 will provide the device with an IP address unique to that device that will remain with that device until the address is relinquished by the user (i.e., when the user moves the device off the Verizon Wireless network).

• IPv4-only devices are not compatible with Persistent Prefix IPv6 addresses.

I received this from Verizon how will this effect future sim cards on the Max

Verizon retracted that message and apologized for sending that out. A new date has not been determined yet and they stated they have plenty of static IPv4 addresses to go around for quite some time.
