Juniper's NetScreen to Get IPv6

CHICAGO – Supercomm – Juniper Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) will take the next step towards integrating the NetScreen Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: NSCN) product range next week, following its $4 billion dollar acquisition of the security specialist earlier this year (see Juniper Buys NetScreen).

Speaking at Supercomm, Juniper executives told Next-gen Data Center Forum that they will use next week’s Networld+Interop event in Tokyo to extend IPv6 support to five of NetScreen’s security products.

Juniper’s M, T, and E-series routers already provide support for IPv6. This will now be extended to NetScreen’s 5XT, 204, 208, 500, and 5200 products. In all cases, Juniper will offer support for both IPv4 and IPv6 in the same product -- because IPv6 networks will remain as islands in an IPv4 Internet sea for the foreseeable future.
