Currently, all the devices are using Internet protocol version 4 (IPv4) to access the internet. IP addresses of the IPv4 are now depleted from IPv4 pool announced by IANA (Internet Assigned Number Authority) in February 2011. To solve this issue Internet protocol version 6 (IPv6) is launched. But the main problem is current devices can't support directly IPv6 that causes various compatibility issues. Many researchers have proposed various techniques, but still, their efficiency and performance

It involves comparing different performance metrics and manual tunneling tunnel efficiency metrics. The main goal of this paper is to examine the dissimilar tunneling techniques and find out which tunneling method is better in all performance, which increases network performance. Experimental results show that ISATAP is better performance in all metrics.
