One advantage of IPv6 is to provide flexible routing mechanism. Allocation of IPv4 network ID as the means used to require in the Internet backbone routers on the maintenance of large routing table. These routers need to know all the routes for transmission may be directed to any node on the Internet data packets. Through its ability to aggregate address, IPv6 supports flexible addressing modes, greatly reduces the size of the routing table. In addressing this new structure, the intermediate routers must only follow the local part of its network in order to properly forward the message.
