IPv6 Avaya Product Compatibility
Avaya’s Fabric Connect technology offers a simplified solution for hybrid IPv4/IPv6.
At Avaya, we are committed to implementing IPv6 protocol standards in, and to gaining independent IPv6 validation for, our products. We have provided IPv6 support in our products for years—Avaya was the first vendor to achieve IPv6 Ready Logo status in 2005 for the Avaya Ethernet Routing Switch 8600.
Internet Protocol version 6—IPv6—is the latest revision to Internet Protocol, the communications protocol that carries the vast majority of data traffic between computers on networks. IPv6 supplants numerous previous alternatives, such as DECnet (by Digital Equipment Corporation) and IPX (by Novell).
The Internet Engineering Task Force developed IPv6 to deal with the long-anticipated problem of IPv4 address exhaustion. IPv6 vastly increases address space to support the demand for unique addresses to support new mobile and embedded devices.
When considering renewal of collaboration and communications solutions, businesses should consider whether IPv6 has direct or immediate implications. For many, IPv4 will continue to suffice for the majority of internal requirements, and the need for IPv6 will be limited to external-facing connections. Others, especially those in certain specialist niches, need to make a complete transition to IPv6.
