Exinda Enables Migration to IPv6 Addresses

Distribution Agreement Broadens VADition’s Roster of ‘Web 2.0’-Enabling Solutions and Expands Exinda’s Reach Across the U.K. and Europe

Andover, MA – Exinda, a global provider of WAN optimization solutions, today announced its Exinda devices and operating systems will provide full support for both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic with the launch of the next version of its ExOS 6.x software. This capability will enable network operators to continue to easily monitor, manage and optimize network traffic as users with IPv6 addresses begin accessing organizations’ Wide Area Networks (WAN).
Exinda WAN Optimization Appliances are currently compatible with IPv6 traffic on networks equipped to support IPv4 and IPv6, and IPv6 traffic that is encapsulated in IPv4. In April, 2011, Exinda will expand its support for IPv6 by enabling its devices and operating system with the ability to accept both an IPv4 and IPv6 native traffic with our ExOS 6.1 release for x700 software, allowing connectivity to both IPv4 and IPv6 networks and network components. With ExOS 6.x versions being released in the first half of 2011, the Exinda appliances will have full layer 7 application classification and visibility for all native IPv6 traffic which will allow complete visibility and policy based control of IPv6 traffic as our customers have with IPv4.
Also in 2011, Exinda will extend support for IPv6 to our x800 WAN optimization suite of technologies by adding IPv6 layer 4 transport optimization, layer 7 application acceleration, WAN memory caching, and compression.
“With the IPv4 address depletion upon us, migration to IPv6 must take place and Exinda’s technology will play a key role in assisting organizations through this transition,” said Kevin Suitor, vice president of marketing at Exinda. “The ability to have full IPv6 layer 7 application, IPv6 address visibility, precise policy based control, and WAN optimization will continue to be a requirement for our customers as it is now.”
Exinda’s position paper on IPV6 is available at the website.
