We’re living at an age where the technologies used in telecommunications keep changing for the better. It seems it was only yesterday when we were discussing the advantages 3G could bring, and now 5G is already knocking at our door. When we think about a change in technology, we automatically have higher downloading speeds and a broader bandwidth in mind. But 5G can potentially provide connectivity to a wide range of devices connected to the network.
Nowadays, if you check the public IP address with which you access the Internet, you will find that it often changes.
This is due to the chronic shortage of IPv4 addresses, which are insufficient to cover current service demands. ISPs, therefore, often assign dynamic public IP addresses and mechanisms, such as Carrier Grade NAT (CGNAT), to allow various client devices to connect through a single IP address. Whilst IPv6 emerged to resolve this difficulty, migration to this protocol has proved a real challenge and not advanced as quickly as expected.
