With the current limitations of network technology, jumbo frames provide a mechanism that can allow greater amount of data transfer efficiently on cables. Implementation of jumbo frames is a viable option on Gigabit Ethernet. In this research undertaking, the authors implement jumbo frames on a test-bed implemented with Windows routers and performance related metrics are measured for both IPv4 and IPv6 implementations. The results obtained in this empirical study shows that performance metrics values are different in various scenarios.
