IPv6 Center of Excellence

Why we are moving to IPv6

The Internet's supply of IP version 4 addresses is nearing exhaustion. The organisation responsible for allocating IPv4 networks to Regional Internet Registries (RIRs), IANA, ran out in late January 2011. The RIR that serves the Asia-Pacific region ran out in mid-April. The RIR that serves Europe will likely run out this summer. These events herald the beginning of a long transition to a new version of the Internet Protocol, IPv6.

Over time, the number of IPv6-based users on the Internet will increase until the point—years from now—that they make up the majority of the Internet. For the time being, the two protocols will coexist on the Internet, entailing the use of IPv4–IPv6 transition technologies, dual-stack DNS, web and mail servers, and more.

BII & Infoblox Partner

When most of the IP networks used in business today were designed, no one could have imagined the number of connected devices, the volume of traffic, or the nature of security threats that these networks would be required to handle – and the problem is only getting bigger. With demand increasing, security attacks becoming more sophisticated, and complex new protocols like IPV6 on the way, businesses must prepare.

BII Compliance partnered with Infoblox as they are the leaders in Automated Network Control. Unlike traditional networks which are manual, fragile and vulnerable–Infoblox technologies make essential services of the modern network (such as DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management), automated, resilient and performing at their highest levels.

With 5,900 customers world-wide, Infoblox is helping organisations control and automate networks for their most strategic initiatives such as cloud, virtualisation, SDN and the transition from IPv4 to IPv6.

As a vendor of IP Address Management solutions, BII with Infoblox is uniquely positioned to help you through this transition. Infoblox provides appliance-based IPAM products that manage both IPv4 and IPv6 on networks, and that support IPv6 networks with DNS and DHCPv6, as well as new transition technologies such as DNS64. Infoblox offers professional services to help you make sense of IPv6: What needs to be done, when, and in what order. Infoblox's IPv6 Center of Excellence is the coordination point for IPv6-related activities at Infoblox.
