Array Networks Inc., a global leader in application delivery networking, today announced successful participation in the world’s largest IPv6 transition technology test. Conducted by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and the Telecommunications Research Institute of Tsinghua University, the test required Array’s APV Series application delivery controller products to demonstrate proficiency across a number of critical IPv6 technologies and use cases in order to obtain certification.
The test invited technology vendors from around the globe to promote IPv6 adoption and evaluate the state of current IPv6 transition technologies. The event also provided a reference point for the transitional government to develop next-generation Internet policy and gave carriers and enterprises a head start in the selection process for next-generation IPv6 solutions. As a leading proponent of IPv6 technology and as the first vendor in China to obtain IPv6-ready certification for government agencies, enterprises, carriers and Internet service, Array Networks demonstrated the role of application delivery networking in enabling a smooth transition to IPv6.
The test was by far the world's largest and most comprehensive IPv6 transition technology evaluation event, demonstrating IPv6 interoperability end-to-end from the data center to the client. As a test participant, Array application delivery controllers provided complete DS-Lite and NAT64 technical support in order to enable smooth transition between IPv6 and IPv4. In the process, Array won the unanimous endorsement of participating experts.
Although organizations around the world are accelerating their deployment of IPv6, IPv6 transition technologies span a wide range of complex use cases and the way forward is not always clear. A lack of standardized testing makes it difficult to verify the characteristics and advantages of various transition technologies and difficult to settle on an IPv6 transition roadmap.
"The number of enterprises concerned about the transition to IPv6 increases the importance of tests such as those recently conducted by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and the Telecommunications Research Institute of Tsinghua University,” said Michael Zhao, president and CEO of Array Networks. “Array’s successful participation in this recent test is another example of our commitment to building consensus and instilling confidence during the transition to IPv6. Our technology has once again demonstrated its technical strength and its ability to solve more complex IPv6 Phase 2 use cases.”
Array APV Series application delivery controllers support interoperability with pure IPv4 and IPv6 networks as well as hybrid IPv46 networks. For both pure and hybrid environments, Array supports a powerful application delivery feature set including server load balancing, global load balancing, link load balancing, as well as a variety of different health inspection methods to provide the highest possible level of network performance and availability.
