IPv6 provides features that savvy customers demand such as IPSec strengthened security, efficient packet processing, 128-bit addresses, and true host to host connectivity.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 26, 2014
Webpass Inc., a San Francisco based Internet service provider deployed public IPv6 addresses to all residential and commercial customers in July 2014. This month the native IPv6 traffic exceeded 5% of the total traffic volume and continues to grow exponentially. A rapid transformation of the Internet is happening now and Webpass customers are on the forefront of the change. More consumer devices are defaulting to IPv6, accelerating the demand for modern IPv6 Internet connectivity.
“Deployment of IPv6 is important for a variety of reasons,” stated Charles Barr, President of Webpass. “Every device connecting to the Internet needs an address. With IPv4 exhausted it’s important customers start using IPv6 now before Network Address Translation services change their user experience. We wanted to be ahead of the curve in adopting the modern IP addressing protocol so there wouldn’t be any disruption to our customers. IPv6 provides features that savvy customers demand such as IPSec strengthened security, efficient packet processing, 128-bit addresses, and true host to host connectivity.”
Webpass IPv6 traffic volumes align with other networks that report IPv6 utilization statistics. Webpass believes native IPv6 traffic will increase to 20% over the next year as commercial and residential customers upgrade networking equipment and peer networks begin accepting IPv6 traffic. With the American Registry for Internet Numbers in the final phase of its IPv4 countdown, the death toll is ringing for IPv4. You can test your IPv6 connection at http://test-ipv6.com/.
