Goal

Is BRM compatible with IPv6 ?

The question is specifically for the network elements that interface with BRM, as we are upgrading from IPv4 to IPv6. In other words, all BRM servers which currently have a IPv4 ip address will be changed to have an IPv6 ip addresses. For example, we are using IP address in CM's pin.conf.

Note : IPv4 means Internet Protocol version 4, whereas IPv6 means Internet Protocol version 6.
IPv4 is 32 bits IP address that we use commonly, Ex: 192.168.8.1 , and support up to 2*32 addresses.
IPv6 is 128 bits, can support up to 2*128 addresses
