Cisco bolsters routers to spur IPv6 migration

By , Network World |  Networking, Cisco, IPv6

At the edge, Cisco rolled out Carrier-Grade IPv6 Solution for its ASR series routers. This is software that helps enable NAT at the edge of a network for smaller or distributed IP networks.

The software is intended to first tunnel IPv6 addresses through IPv4; and then perform the inverse function as IPv6 addresses outnumber IPv4.

Lastly, Cisco is offering services for the Carrier-Grade IPv6 Solution implementation. These are professional services designed to make the transition to IPv6 smooth and reduce the risk to network operations. The services include initial planning and IPv6 readiness assessment to design and implementation.

All products will be available in early 2010. Cisco did not disclose pricing.
