In a press release presented on Market Wire by the company, Procera Networks Inc. announced support for IPv6 across the entire PacketLogic Real-Time Enforcement (PRE) product line. This move is in direct response to IPv6 being central to many of the next generation network standards (3GPP, DOCSIS 3.0, TISPAN). The company claims IPv6 is supported across the entire range of PacketLogic hardware platforms — from the PL5600 (200 Mbps), the PL7720 (2 Gbps), the PL8720 (15 Gbps), to the PL10000 (80 Gbps). In addition IPv6 is supported for all of Procera’s deployed units, and does not require a hardware upgrade for existing units.
“‘Many of our customers are seeing dramatic growth in the amount of IPv6 traffic on their networks and have been working with Procera to deploy IPv6 policy enforcement,’ said Alexander Haväng, CTO of Procera. ‘Network operators that do not have support for IPv6 in their policy enforcement deployments will find that they are lacking in key areas of network intelligence and policy management as the use of IPv6 grows throughout 2011.'”
