Reston, VA (PRWEB) December 6, 2005
Eracent, Inc. announced today that it will be a sponsor of the United States IPv6 Summit, being held December 6 through December 9, at the Reston Hyatt Regency. The conference will focus on the issues and topics surrounding the migration to Version 6 of the Internet Protocol (IPv6). Conference presentation topics include “Network Centric Operations for Military and Homeland Defense”, “The Department of Defense Transition Plan to IPv6”, “How and When the New Internet Will Create Innovative New Businesses and Jobs” and “Plans and Status for the entire U.S. Government Transition to IPv6”.
While at the conference Eracent will be discussing the application of its technology as a tool for an effective migration from the current Internet Protocol to IPv6. The need for a smooth transition was recognized very early in the planning stages of the IPv6 protocol and one critical aspect of implementing a successful transition is discovering and inventorying all of the various network components that would be impacted by changing IP protocols. Eracent’s Network Probe discovers and interrogates networked devices using a multi-variant approach that yields extremely accurate inventory results. Each device on a network has identifiable characteristics that the Network Probe uses to perform its inventory and discovery functions. By utilizing a variety of data sets captured from the devices the Eracent technology can provide the IT manager with detailed information on previously unknown or partially identifiable devices.
Using Eracent’s agentless technology, Network Probe collects complete configuration information for each discovered device allowing network managers to identify characteristics of devices that would need to be replaced or upgraded to support IPv6. Using that information, report network and IT managers can easily develop a transition budget and schedule.
Commenting on this application of Eracent’s technology, and the company’s participation in the IPv6 conference, Barry Long, Eracent’s Government Business Liaison, said that, “We see great potential in the role that advanced IT asset management technologies, such as Eracent’s Network probe, can play in facilitating a smooth transition from IPv4 to IPv6. In an era where seamless Internet connectivity is crucial to the operation of government agencies and private enterprise it is critical that IP providers and network administrators have all the tools they need to insure a problem-free migration.”
