IPv6 global unicast address

The global unicast IPv6 addresses are similar to IPv4 public addresses. These addresses can be used on the Internet. The big difference with IPv4 however, is that IPv6 has so much address space that we can use global unicast addresses on any device in the network.

Global unicast addresses can be statically assigned, can be configured using the EUI-64 method, can be assigned using SLAAC, or DHCPv6.
