PCCW Global enhances IPv4 & IPv6 Dual Stack approach for Internet access ensuring smooth transition for customers
HONG KONG, August 9, 2010 – PCCW Global, a subsidiary of Hong Kong’s premier telecommunications provider, PCCW Limited, has enhanced its Dual Stack solution to help customers transition from IPv4 to IPv6 standard following the expansion of its IPv6 capabilities.
The Dual Stack solution is available as part of PCCW Global’s IP-Transit and Global Internet Access (GIA) suite of services. Customer organizations are able to run Internet traffic based on both IPv4 and IPv6 standards in a seamless fashion and via a single connection. The Dual Stack solution is an industry-recognized approach which ensures a smooth and secure transition from IPv4 to IPv6, when compared with other older methods such as tunneling and protocol translation.
This enhancement has been made possible by PCCW Global’s recent international network upgrade that expanded its IPv6 capabilities. PCCW Global’s IPv6 points of presence now include Hong Kong, France, Germany, Japan, the Philippines, Singapore and the U.S., with more geographical coverage scheduled in the near future.
Mr. Henry Au-Yeung, Senior Vice President of International Products and Solutions, said, “PCCW Global’s proven track record in the IP-Transit space is the power behind our solid commitment to keep international enterprises and service providers at the leading edge of Internet technology. Our IPv6 implementation project continues to empower customers to take advantage of all the emerging web-based applications and services in a new era of backbone Internet access.”
PCCW Global’s leading-edge IPv6 capability and IP network infrastructure have received high ranking in the Renesys Global Peering Base Ranking of IP-Transit providers. This has demonstrated that PCCW Global’s IP network has a very effective global peering structure which is a crucial element in the delivery of high quality worldwide IP-Transit services.
