New Delhi, Dec 15 (ANI/Business Wire India): Fremont, Calif-based Hurricane Electric, the world's leading IPv6-native Internet backbone and colocation provider, today announced that its Director of IPv6 Strategy, Martin Levy, will speak at the India IPv6 Summit today in a talk entitled IPv6 on the Internet - how far have we come towards global IPv6 connectivity?
The summit is being sponsored by the IPv6 Forum India, an organization dedicated to bringing awareness of IPv6 to India, encouraging IPv6's widespread deployment and building an active IPv6 community within India.
"IPv6 Forum India has been instrumental to bringing awareness of IPv6 not only to India, but the world," said Martin Levy, Hurricane Electric's Director of IPv6 Strategy. "I am honored to address the summit and look forward to sharing a global progress report on IPv6 connectivity."
Hurricane Electric first deployed IPv6 on its global backbone in 2001, and the company now interconnects with more than 600 associated IPv6 backbones - approximately twice as many as its nearest rival. Hurricane Electric is one of the few global Internet backbones that is IPv6 native and does not rely on internal tunnels for its IPv6 connectivity. IPv6 at Hurricane Electric is a core service and every customer is provided IPv6 connectivity as well as classic IPv4 connectivity.
In addition to offering enterprises free IPv6 certification, in July Hurricane Electric released an IPv4 depletion Application for the iPhone and Google Android platform and additional tools to educate CIOs and network administrators about the urgency of the transition to IPv6. (ANI)
