IPv6 addresses are classified by the primary addressing and routing methodologies common in networkinG. unicast addressing, anycast addressing, and multicast addressing.

IPv6 is the latest version of the Internet Protocol (IP), designed to replace the older IPv4 protocol. IPv6 offers several new features and improvements over IPv4.

The two features of IPv6 are:

  1. Anycast: Anycast is a network addressing and routing methodology in which data is sent to the nearest interface that has the required address. In other words, multiple devices can share the same IPv6 address, and data sent to that address is delivered to the nearest device that shares that address. This can improve network efficiency and reduce latency.

  2. Multicast: Multicast is a network addressing and routing method in which data is sent to a group of devices that have expressed interest in receiving that data. IPv6 multicast allows a single source to send data to multiple destinations simultaneously, reducing network traffic and improving efficiency.

The other options listed in the question are not features of IPv6. Broadcast is a feature of IPv4 where data is sent to all devices on a network segment. Podcast and allcast AC are not related to networking or Internet Protocol.
