Network Address Translation
Network Address Translation (short: NAT) is a procedure in which network addresses are translated so that networks can be linked. This is necessary, for example, with IPv4 because there are too few IP addresses to provide all smart devices with their own IP address. IPv6 makes NAT mostly unnecessary.Why this is interesting for a Chief Digital Officer (CDO)?
