Nowadays, Internet technologies are growing drastically. These Internet technologies vary from very complicated tasks to very simple tasks. Therefore, there are needs to connect to the Internet resources. Without Internet, many works are not possible. Having realized the importances of Internet, any issues that are related to the Internet are given serious attentions. These attentions are varied from many levels of users. With millions of users that are increasing drastically, Internet becomes a very complicated
network. Since Internet Protocol (IP) is one of the important elements in computer network, many researches have been conducted which aim to improve the service quality. Without IPS, Internet is not functioning well. Current IP, namely IPv4, cannot support the increasing number of network devices. IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version
6) is the solution in overcoming the shortage of IP addresses. In a short duration, IPv6 becomes very popular and it is spread around the world. Since the former IP
structure is not appropriate to support the fast development of Internet network, this often results in the degradation of service quality.
This thesis aims to evaluate the performance of TCP and UDP data transmission in current IP network (IPv4) and IPV6 network. The matrics of evaluation are based on throughput, loss rate and round-trip time. All the testing are conducted in 6iNet testbed. Transmitted TCP and UDP packets are generated using Netperf, which is the performance tool. The experiments consist of the investigation of TCP and UDP performances, which are analyzed in different networks. At the same time, the results of the experiments provide new knowledge to the next generation of IP implementation in term of TCP and UDP transmission. This also provides new experiences to the researchers. The finding from this study is able to provide the network administrators the knowledge to configure new IPv6 architecture especially in campus network. This thesis also provides an extensive survey of the literature of performance measurement. The performance measurement provides useful resources for researchers who are interested in this field.
