What is one advantage that the IPv6 simplified header offers over IPv4?

  • smaller-sized header
  • little requirement for processing checksums
  • smaller-sized source and destination IP addresses
  • efficient packet handling
    Explanation:

    The IPv6 simplified header offers several advantages over IPv4:
    · Better routing efficiency and efficient packet handling for performance and forwarding-rate scalability
    · No requirement for processing checksums
    · Simplified and more efficient extension header mechanisms (as opposed to the IPv4 Options field)
    · A Flow Label field for per-flow processing with no need to open the transport inner packet to identify the various traffic flows
