GSA Migrates from IPv4 to IPv6 with Level 3

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has migrated its IPv4 network, to IPv6 with the help of Level 3 Communications. GSA is the first civilian agency to be in compliance with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandate to utilize the next generation IPv6 network.

"Due to the size and scale of the Level 3 network, our company has been a leader in the development, adoption and deployment of new standards, and we intend to follow a similar path with regard to IPv6," said Edward Morche, general manager of Level 3's Federal segment. "We are pleased to build upon our long-standing relationship with the GSA and to have played an instrumental role in the GSA's transition to the next generation of technology."
