The US Government has issued a mandate to all vendors to make the switch to an IPv6 platform by summer of 2008. This requirement will boost IPv6 deployment in coming years.
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is designed as the successor of IPv4, the current version of the Internet Protocol, for general use on the Internet. IPv6 that is gradually replacing IPv4 worldwide fixes a number of problems in its predecessor, such as lack of IP addresses, routing and network autoconfiguration. However, today’s networks are not ready to leap to the new version right away and IPv6 transition is seen as a serious technical issue that needs immediate attention. This fuels discussions on what impact IPv6 will have on carriers’ VoIP networks since VoIP, being an IP-based technology, uses IPv4 to send voice conversations as data packets over Internet.
The two protocols will coexist for many years but the sooner VoIP service providers find out about IPv6 advantages the more their networks can benefit from the innovation. Join MERA Systems for this educational webinar and explore how IPv6 affects your VoIP business.
The webinar makes you aware of the most burning issues of IPv6 transition.
In addition to this, you will explore how your VoIP networks will benefit from IPv6. The speakers will
dwell on the most crucial IPv6 advantages among which are the following:
- Ensuring carrier-grade quality of service with IPv6
- Addressing voice delivery across firewall and NAT (network address translation)
- Preventing denial of service attacks
- Enabling 4 to 6 interoperability
Learn how to successfully address the issues of transition to IPv6 and meet the challenge equipped
with valuable knowledge!
After the presentation, the Webinar will be open for a live Q&A. Be sure to have your questions ready!
