Juniper Networks will participate in the International day of IPv6, which will be held June 8, 2011| 08.02.2011
Company Juniper Networks announced its participation in the International day of IPv6 (World IPv6 Day), which will be held on 8 June 2011 and will be a one-day event on testing web sites
with IPv6 support, sponsored by community Internet Society (ISOC).
In the framework of the International IPv6 day will be a full-scale global test of IPv6: the basic Telecom companies, Internet corporations, and other industry leaders will use IPv6 to
their main websites for 24 hours. The main purpose of the event is the joint work of the participants and members of the global Internet community towards the full implementation of IPv6
minimal disruption, as well as General awareness-raising about effective strategies for a smooth migration from IPv4 to IPv6.
“The announcement made by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority [IANA] that the remaining IPv4 address blocks was allocated, was not unexpected and should not be considered as a reason for
concern – we believe that the Internet will continue to grow steadily, – says Alain Durand (Alain Durand), Director software development division of the infrastructure
products in the company Juniper Networks. – Juniper Networks for many years provided support to its customers from the number of operators and corporate customers, providing a series of IPv4-solutions
products that are ready to move to IPv6, and coexistence strategies for IPv4/IPv6. Our participation in the International day of IPv6 is another opportunity to say that we support the transition to IPv6 with
solutions for switching, routing and security, in particular, on the example of our official web site”.
Company Juniper Networks has invested significant amounts of money in the development of a wide range of technologies and solutions designed to help clients meet the needs of IP addressing and
at the same time to build IPv6 networks as rapidly as required by the development of markets and services. While the bulk of Internet content is available on IPv4 addresses, Juniper offers
its customers with reliable NAT solutions, including Carrier, carrier-grade NAT (CGNAT) for continuous access to devices, endpoints and content networking IPv4.
“Most Internet content is stored on the IPv4, – says Michael Howard (Michael Howard), principal analyst of carrier networks and data centers in the Agency Infonetics Research. – Clearly,
the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 will be long, but it managed the process”.
“The depletion of IPv4 addresses is an important and long-awaited turning point in the history of the Internet,” adds Durand, who also will participate in the discussion of migration to IPv6 for World
The V6 Congress in Paris next week.
