IPv6 Transition Software

IPv6 Rapid Deployment and IPv4 Residual Deployment

IPv6 migration has become front and center for ISPs and Network Service Providers. Early in 2011, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) and APNIC exhausted their pool of IPv4 addresses. On 8 June 2011, top websites and ISPs around the world joined together in World IPv6 Day for a successful global-scale trial of IPv6.

The global transition to IPv6 has begun

ISPs and other access providers require a migration strategy that will enable them to continue to provide full connectivity to all of their customers throughout the transition to IPv6, both to new IPv6-based services and existing IPv4 services.

IP Infusion can help you through the transition to IPv6 with its IETF standards-compliant IPv6 Rapid Deployment and IPv4 Residual Deployment solutions. Our solutions consist of software that you can integrate into your existing gateways and CPEs, protecting your current network investment. IPv6 Rapid Deployment provides IPv6 tunnels over your existing IPv4 access network between your CPEs and your gateways to provide your customers secure access to IPv6 networks and services. Similarly, if your access network is IPv6, IPv4 Residual Deployment will provide stateless IPv4 over IPv6 tunnels for your existing IPv4 customers with efficient global IPv4 address sharing. Stateless tunneling has the advantage of not requiring you to manage per user state; abusive users can easily be identified. Furthermore, stateless tunneling simplifies high availability (HA) and scalability of the gateway since the need to scale is only based on traffic volume.

Both IPv6 Rapid Deployment and IPv4 Residual Deployment are under your control – secure, cost-effective, and quick and straight-forward to deploy across your existing network. Also, both solutions are standards-compliant software solutions, providing you with the flexibility, control, and speed to market you need.

IP Infusion has been preparing for the transition to IPv6 longer than anyone. We delivered the first commercial implementation of IPv6 over a decade ago. And our co-founder, Kunihiro Ishiguro, was a pioneer in the development of IPv6 routing software back in the 1990s.

IPv6 Rapid Deployment and IPv4 Residual Deployment are fully supported on the following platforms:

  • NetBSD 4.0.1
  • Linux 2.6.21 and 2.6.32
