An Orange, An Apple, A like for IPv6!
How many devices do you have that are sucking up IP addresses? Apple continues to lure me in for the latest and greatest iPad and iPhones, with the new iPad being the latest to capture my eye. This continual proliferation of devices has been illustrated in the latest VNI results. Apple of course enables these devices with a fully functioning IPv6 stack as was demonstrated at the IPv6 World Congress this year. While at the IPv6 World Congress 2012 we had the opportunity to chat with Jacqueline Queiroz , a Network Architect with Orange, about IPv6 adoption.
Network operators, content providers and device manufacturers all are navigating the IPv6 migration waters – Orange is no different. IPv6 adoption progress varies, but France has been proven to be one of the global leaders in IPv6 adoption. This was well chronicled in a study conducted by Google and discussed further here. Orange being headquartered in France plays an obvious role in this adoption trend.
Jacqueline plays a key part in Orange’s IPv6 adoption as her focus lies in IPv6 transition technologies such as DS-lite and complementing Port Control Protocol.
DS-lite is one of the many supported technologies on our industry leading CGv6 solution, including the Cisco CRS and the ASR 9000. This solution is well documented as part of the Cisco Carrier Grade IPv6 Solution.
