The future of the internet and telecommunications will be based on Internet Protocol version 6. IPv6 provides end-to-end security for voice and control packets traveling across an IP telephony network, and it eliminates NAT.

According to Google (News - Alert), in March, the adoption rate of IPv6 was around a third globally and around 46% in the U.S. As more organizations adopt IPv6, Telinta announced it added Hurricane Electric’s (News - Alert) global IPv6 network to connect its cloud-based TeliCore Softswitch and Billing platform.

TeliCore is Telinta's carrier-grade hosted VoIP softswitch platform, integrating Telinta’s (News - Alert) VolP solutions with switching and billing capabilities. The Class 4 softswitch capabilities offer a carrier-grade hosted solution for wholesale VoIP providers. The Class 5 softswitch capabilities are for end-user services such as hosted PBX (News - Alert), residential VoIP and mobile solutions.

Hurricane Electric’s IPv6 network will be a part of Telinta’s redundant connectivity with multiple Tier-1 carriers and will enhance Telinta’s global reach in providing hosted solutions to customers worldwide. This includes white label solutions for VoIP and UCaaS services such as hosted PBX, SIP trunks, VoIP calling from brandable mobile and desktop softphones and WebRTC.

“By leveraging our global network, Telinta can further serve the needs of VoIP providers,” said Mike Leber, president, Hurricane Electric. “Connecting to our network will also ensure that Telinta’s customers benefit from increased availability and reliability when using Telinta’s platform.”

Hurricane Electric, connected to over 250 major exchange points and exchanges traffic directly with more than 9,000 networks, operates its own global IPv4 and IPv6 network. Hurricane Electric offers IPv4 and IPv6 transit solutions over the same connection with connection speeds that include 100GE (100 gigabits/second), 40GE, 10GE and gigabit ethernet.

“Hurricane Electric brings Telinta the type of reliability, service and support we can depend on to serve our customers,” said Alex Ferdman, Telinta’s CEO. 

With Hurricane Electric, Telinta will continue to deliver its TeliCore platform to its VoIP service providers – now with added stability and reliability for the IPv6 generation.
