NEW YORK -- F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:FFIV - News), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking (ADN), today announced its new IPv6 Solution Services offering. This Professional Services offering will help organizations address their need to establish a presence on the IPv6 Internet as new IPv6-only devices flood the market and the available supply of IPv4 addresses dwindles. F5 has also announced that its BIG-IP® solutions are deployed in the Network Operations Center (NOC) at Interop New York, happening October 3-7 at the Javits Convention Center. These solutions will provide key application and IPv6 connectivity in support of Interop vendors and attendees.

Every device that connects to the Internet must have an Internet Protocol (IP) address, but the current protocol version, IPv4, doesn’t have the address capacity to meet today’s explosive demand in Internet-connected devices. IPv6 does, but because it’s incompatible with IPv4, organizations worldwide must inevitably transition to or provide support for IPv6 to ensure that their web-based services and applications are available to the broadest range of Internet users.

“We’re seeing many enterprises struggle to transition their public-facing websites to IPv6 networks, deliver reliable services for new IPv6 client devices, comply with stringent new regulatory requirements, and adjust to the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses,” said Ian Jones, VP of Global Professional Services Consulting at F5. “Many customers don’t feel they have enough in-house knowledge and understanding of IPv6 on their own network infrastructures to attempt an IPv6 deployment without outside assistance. Our new Professional Services offering for IPv6 provides the support and best practice guidance customers need to make these transitions as easy as possible—whatever their unique requirements are.”
