Brocade's IPv6 Transition And Application Delivery

On February 3, 2011, the last available IPv4 addresses where allocated by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).

The clock is counting. The situation is further intensified with proliferation of mobile devices, spiking up the demand for even more IP addresses.

It is time to plan your strategy since IPv6 is just a matter of time.

According to Adrian Low,Regional Director, Application Delivery Platform (APAC), It‘s the 'Y2k' problem of Internet world. Jumping directly from IPv4-only network to IPv6-only network is not an economically viable solution, it is a marathon and not sprint.

The Brocade ServerIron ADX Series application delivery switch can be used to present an organization's existing sites and services to IPv6 users, and Brocade also has a NAT gateway for translating IPv4 to IPv6 addresses. These provide the necessary inter-operability and allow for resilient, reliable networks with the application intelligence that router-based implementation can’t provide.
