A10 Networks Releases IPv6 Migration Tools
Looking to address the growing issue of IPv6, A10 Networks has released new migration tools for carriers and ISPs. As noted on CBR, A10 Networks' DS-Lite enables dual use of PIv4 and PIv6 addresses, which A10 says will help companies with the migration process.
"To help ISPs and carriers with the migration process A10 has boosted its AX application delivery controller series with the announcement of the Large Scale NAT (LSN) and Dual-Stake Lite (DS-Lite).
"A10 claims that LSN can share public IPv4 addresses among multiple customers as well as standardizing NAT devices, offering consistent behavior and expectations for applications. It also offers tolerance for greater traffic variations.
"DS-Lite enables dual use of PIv4 and PIv6 addresses, which A10 says will help companies with the migration process. It outsources Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) embedded NAT capabilities to the carrier NAT device, which A10 says keeps a single layer of NAT."
