LAS VEGAS -- Data Connection Limited (DCL), the world's leading independent provider of communications protocol software, announced today at NXTcomm08 (DCL Booth #SU5323) that Force10 Networks has integrated DCL's OSPFv3 protocol solution to enable IPv6 capable OSPF routing functionality on Force10's operating system (FTOS). OSPFv3 provides a larger IP address space than its OSPFv2 predecessor and includes protocol enhancements as defined by the IETF's RFC 2740.

The IPv6 addressing functionality enables Force10 to address the next generation, high performance scale requirements of applications such as research & development institutions, internet exchange points, and US and international government agencies.

"We selected Data Connection's OSPFv3 as they proved to meet the demanding scaling and reliability requirements of our customers and had the modular capabilities that are intrinsic to FTOS," said Subramanian Krishnamurthy, vice president of technology for Force10 Networks. "Also, Data Connection's longevity, history of success, and extensive product line and roadmap sets the table for a long-term, strategic partnership."
