Web Host ReviewsSUNNYVALE, CA – Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) today announced its support for Dual Stack Lite (DS-Lite), a unique and promising approach to IPv6 migration, further illustrating its leadership in Carrier Grade Network Address Translation (CGNAT) at the gogoNET LIVE! 2010 conference in San Jose, CA.

DS-Lite is a key technology that allows service providers to handle IPv4 address exhaustion incrementally while using IPv6 as a transport layer for IPv4 in the access network.  DS-Lite allows service providers to handle IPv4 address exhaustion by supporting the deployment of IPv6, and at the same time keeping only one layer of NAT for their subscribers.

“DS-Lite allows incremental build outs where IPv6 needs to be deployed only in the access networks,” said Robert Krohn, vice president and general manager, Router Services, Juniper Networks. “The beauty of DS-Lite is that it couples the deployment of IPv6 with a way to share IPv4 addresses, encouraging the industry to move toward IPv6. This technology is a classic example of Juniper’s continued leadership in delivering CGNAT solutions.”

Juniper has supported IPv6 forwarding in silicon since its very first product shipment and has been recognized as a global leader in high-performance, next-generation IPv6 networks since 2001. Juniper’s CGNAT solutions offer a pragmatic, business driven approach to IPv6 migration. With its broad networking and software portfolio, Juniper provides a comprehensive toolkit that helps enterprises and service providers manage rapidly depleting IPv4 addresses while simultaneously executing an IPv6 migration strategy.

Juniper’s participation in gogoNET LIVE! 2010 demonstrates its commitment to helping customers solve IPv6 challenges and make educated, practical decisions about the technologies they employ in their networks. “Juniper is demonstrating thought leadership with its support of the gogoNET LIVE! 2010 conference,” said Bruce Sinclair, CEO, gogo6. “By presenting, putting on workshops and being a gold sponsor of the event Juniper is supporting gogoNET LIVE!’s mission of providing networking professionals with the knowledge they need to migrate to IPv6 in an IPv4-exhausted world.”
