Last week we celebrated World IPv6 Day and several of the world’s largest websites and internet service providers—including Facebook and Google—permanently enabled the next-generation Internet, IPv6. This new Internet protocol provides a greater number of addresses to support more people, more companies and more devices—especially given the explosive growth of smartphones and tablets. Time Magazine called the deployment of IPv6 “only the most significant architectural development in the history of the Internet.”
This “upgrade” to the internet goes hand-in-hand with the growing trend of mobility and cloud. And as individuals become more and more dependent on their mobile devices and tablets, so do small businesses. As such, it’s impossible to discuss the transformation of the internet without taking into account an essential element in this evolution of everyday connectivity: routers.
Fundamental to the way we connect our devices to the internet—be it at home or at work—routers are the vehicle by which we enable collaboration and innovation. Today, Cisco unveiled a new router, the Cisco RV042G Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Router, that provides support for next generation operating systems and applications like IPv6. In addition, users take solace in knowing Cisco’s stalwart security, limited lifetime warranty and ease of use are inherent in the implementation of the RV042G.
The Cisco RV042G Router delivers highly secure, high-performance, reliable connectivity to the Internet, other offices, and employees working remotely from the heart of your small business network. This proven router provides the performance and security you need to help keep your employees, and your business, productive. The native IPv6 support future-proofs your network, also providing cloud-based web filtering and threat protection. Tested to same standards as Cisco Enterprise products, the router secures connectivity for both the main office and branch offices.
As the internet evolves, shouldn’t your router?
