RFC                   IPv10 Specification            November 17, 2017

1.  Introduction

    IP version 10 (IPv10) is a new version of the Internet Protocol,
    designed to allow IP version 6 [RFC-2460] to communicate to 
    IP version 4 (IPv4) [RFC-791] and vice versa.

- Internet is the global wide network used for communication between
  hosts connected to it.

- These connected hosts (PCs, servers, routers, mobile devices, etc.)
  must have a global unique addresses to be able to communicate
  through the Internet and these unique addresses are defined in the
  Internet Protocol (IP).

- The first version of the Internet Protocol is IPv4.

- When IPv4 was developed in 1975, it was not expected that the number
  of connected hosts to the Internet reach a very huge number of hosts
  more than the IPv4 address space, also it was aimed to be used for
  experimental purposes in the beginning.

- IPv4 is (32-bits) address allowing approximately 4.3 billion unique
  IP addresses.

- A few years ago, with the massive increase of connected hosts to the
  Internet, IPv4 addresses started to run out.

- Three short-term solutions (CIDR, Private addressing, and NAT) were
  introduced in the mid-1990s but even with using these solutions,
  the IPv4 address space ran out in February, 2011 as announced by
  IANA, The announcement of depletion of the IPv4 address space by
  the RIRs is as follows:

  * April, 2011:      APNIC announcement.
  * September, 2012:  RIPE NCC announcement.
  * June, 2014:       LACNIC announcement.
  * September, 2015:  ARIN announcement.
 

- A long term solution (IPv6) was introduced to increase the address
  space used by the Internet Protocol and this was defined in the
  Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6).
