Fact from AT&T IPv6 Services

“In 1995, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers
(IEEE) global standards body specified a whole new Internet
Protocol, called IPv6, which adds several services to the protocol
and lengthens the address space from 32 bits to 128 bits. The
greater address space means there are many, many more possible
combinations of bits, resulting in an almost an infinite number of
IPv6 addresses.” http://www.business.att.com/content/whitepaper/how-will-ipv6-impact-your-network1.pdf

Ok, now the truth – IETF created the standard and not IEEE. This document found on AT&T’s website is meant to help you ‘trust’ AT&T enough to allow them to upgrade your IPv4 network to IPv6. I wonder what else they got wrong…

AT&T, please perform fact check….
