SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 8, 2014) - A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN), a technology leader in application networking, announced today that its Thunder CGN, Thunder HVA, and AX CGN product lines received the IPv6 Ready Gold Logo, certifying that its products have satisfied the strong requirements stated by the IPv6 Logo Committee (v6LC) and verifying optimum compliance. The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL) performed extensive testing before granting this distinction, requiring vendors to comply 100 percent for both conformance and interoperability test specifications.
The Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) address standard is intended to eventually replace IPv4, the protocol most Internet services currently use. Many of today's networks are prepared to scale bandwidth capacity, but the rapid proliferation of Internet-connected devices has virtually depleted the available IPv4 address space. The IPv6 adoption rate is increasing, as the advent of new Internet-connected locations and devices places great pressure on the existing IPv4 infrastructure.
"As a leader in application networking, A10 Networks has impressively contributed to the introduction of IPv6 for a long time," said Dr. Hiroshi Esaki, Professor, The University of Tokyo and Chairman of the IPv6-Ready Logo Committee. "Especially, A10 Networks contributed on CGN and on professional-quality IPv6/IPv4 translation. I believe that A10 Networks will continue to lead regarding the smooth and professional transition of fully IPv6-enabled networks."
"With our Advanced Core Operating System, or ACOS, as the driving force behind our technology, A10 has an extensive set of products that has achieved the IPv6 Ready Gold Logo," said Jason Matlof, vice president of worldwide marketing at A10 Networks. "Early on, A10 was a leader in IPv6 migration and CGN technology. We're pleased that our interoperability work will benefit service providers, enterprises, and other business customers developing an IPv6 transition strategy."
