With the evolution of internet over the years the transition from ipv4 to ipv6 has become a great necessity. Due to the shortage of ipv4 address space provided by the IANA (internet assigned numbers authority) we are left with no choice but to go for ipv6 transition process. By default, ipv4 and ipv6 network cannot communicate with each other,so we have to provide the facility of communication between them. This facility can be provided by various transition mechanisms which includes dual stack mechanism,tunnelling and NAT protocoltranslation. This paper demonstrates comparison study between ipv4 and ipv6 and the transition from ipv4 to ipv6.
