IPv6

The Future of the Internet

With the digital universe rapidly expanding at an exponential rate, current Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) addresses are being depleted and the adoption of a new version of the IP addressing scheme is necessary to support the burgeoning Internet demand. Created in response to the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses, Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is now increasingly being implemented globally to power the Internet forward.

To help Asia migrate to IPv6, Pacnet is constantly evolving its IP network infrastructure to meet the requirements of the new technology. A pioneer in the deployment of commercial IPv6-based services since 2003, Pacnet’s extensive Internet backbone supports IPv6 in major cities in the Asia Pacific region. Pacnet’s dual stack IPv6 solution enhances the network’s performance when handling both IPv6 and IPv4 addresses. This also enables customers the flexibility to migrate to IPv6 while still retaining compatibility with legacy applications that need to remain on IPv4.

A World Wide Web of Possibilities

We believe that the move to IPv6 opens the door to infinite opportunities for the Web as the demand for IP addresses accelerates. The new Internet Protocol could now support a greater number of new devices, and consequently, has the potential to give rise to new business opportunities and invent new business models through the multiplier effect.

We continue to expand our IPv6 capabilities throughout the Pacnet IP network globally, as well as ready our customers to enter the new era of Internet.
