FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA, May 12, 2011 - Support for IPv6 is critical for ongoing seamless interoperability with all future websites and home networking technologies and devices. IPv6 is a new version of the Internet Protocol designed to succeed Internet IPv4, which is projected to exhaust all available IP addresses by the end of this year. In addition to providing enough addresses so every device today and in the future has a unique address, IPv6 offers a wide range of improvements, including significant speed and security enhancements.
“By leading the industry in IPv6 compliant devices, features, performance, and security, D-Link is making it easy for individuals, business owners and ISPs to guarantee uninterrupted Internet access,” said AJ Wang, chief technology officer, D-Link North America. “Based on our work with Service Providers, consumers should demand that their network routers and devices support IPv6 today.”
Moving Forward with a D-Link IPv6-Ready Network
Foreseeing the future of connectivity needs, D-Link is the first networking company to offer a range of IPv6-compliant routers, access points and powerline communication devices. D-Link is also deploying products and conducting field test trials with many leading phone and cable service providers worldwide, as IPv6 readiness is a critical component of future internet service performance, security and overall reliability.
Designed to help people understand the upcoming IPv6 transition, D-Link’s new IPv6-dedicated site addresses common questions, outlines the benefits of the new Internet Protocol and identifies current IPv6-ready D-Link products. Integrating an IPv6-certified product offers a host of benefits and enables consumers to future-proof their home wireless networks as Internet Service Providers (ISPs) upgrade their offerings. Highlights include:
World IPv6 Day and D-Link IPv6 Readiness
To help support a smooth IPv6 transition, D-Link is participating in World IPv6 Day on June 8, 2011, where several major Web providers and other industry players will offer content over IPv6 for a 24-hour “test flight.” Throughout the event, D-Link will monitor activities to discover and address any potential issues, as well as raise awareness of the need for IPv6 readiness. The goal is to motivate organizations across the industry – ISPs, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies – to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition.
