Limelight Adds IPv6 to its Content Delivery Service

Limelight Networks has added IPv6 support to its content delivery service with Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) support.
Specific IPv6 capabilities include:

  • Ability to offer dual-stack (IPv6/IPv4) or IPv6 connectivity at company-owned locations

  • /32 allocations from the American Registry of Internet Numbers (ARIN), Asia-Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC), and Reseaux Internet Protocol Europeens (RIPE)

  • Full IPv6 transit routes from multiple providers

  • Full IPv6 Domain Name Services (DNS)

  • IPv6 peering at v6 enabled-exchanges

  • IPv6 (dual-stack) capable from any transit or peering or customer origin ingress to the edge

  • Customer and end-user IPv6 interface for existing or new IPv4 content.

Limelight Networks will run IPv4 and IPv6 simultaneously across its entire network platform.
