DENVER, CO – October 19, 2011 – With the depletion of IPv4 addresses already begun at some Regional Internet Registries, Secure64 Software Corporation today announced its DNS64 migration technology – available through its Secure64 DNS Cache software appliance – is being deployed at one of the largest U.S. wireless providers. The deployment is in support of the wireless provider’s fast-growing network of IP-enabled handsets and demonstrates the speed and return on investment of this approach to managing IPv4-to-IPv6 transitions.
Secure64 recommends that service providers employ current best practices which involve selecting a migration technology and then evaluating different products based on their support of that technology. These migration technologies include:
- Dual stack – a migration technology where both IP protocol versions coexist in all parts of the network.
- 6RD – an RFC-standardized migration technology that uses tunnels to provide IPv6 access for customers. The service provider core network is still IPv4.
- Dual Stack (DS) Lite – a migration technology that is the mirror image of 6RD. 6RD uses an IPv4 core network with an IPv6 tunnel, whereas DS Lite uses an IPv6-enabled core with IPv4 tunneling.
- DNS64/NAT64 – a migration technology that leapfrogs into IPv6, skipping complicated tunnels and dual-stacked networks. The basic idea is to create an IPv6-only network at the client side and translate any packets that need to reach the IPv4-only Internet. The fact that an IPv6-only network is created does not limit the client’s possibility to access IPv4-only content. The translators provide backwards compatibility.
Secure64 DNS Cache’s performance and security advantages allow service providers to consolidate servers, improve end user responsiveness and protect users from debilitating DNS attacks, leading to increased customer loyalty, decreased churn and improved brand value.
