IP Infusion Adds Tunneling for Coexisting IPv4 and IPv6 Networks

IP Infusion has expanded its portfolio of IPv6 software with new tunneling technologies that enable the coexistence of IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

The IPv6 over IPv4 tunneling solution, which is being released as ZebOS Rapid Deployment, forwards IPv6 traffic though IPv4 networks and is based on 6rd (IPv6 rapid deployment) specifications which are published as a Request for Comments (RFC) by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

The proposed IETF 6rd solution utilizes stateless IPv6 in IPv4 encapsulation in order to transit IPv4-only network infrastructure, and can achieve high scalability by leveraging stateless tunneling technology. IP Infusion's ZebOS Rapid Deployment also provides an accounting function which manages user traffic for enabling Internet services, and a filtering function which differentiates users--both important functions in order for carriers to deploy a new IPv6 service by using 6rd.

BBIX Inc. currently provides an Internet exchange service in Japan and plans to launch an IPv6 roaming service for other Internet service providers based on IP Infusion's ZebOS Rapid Deployment.
