Q9 to Participate in World IPv6 Day

June 2, 2011 by  

Webmaster ToolboxTORONTO – Q9 Networks is pleased to announce that after two years of planning and a 12-month deployment project, it has successfully implemented IPv6 throughout all of its data centers. As part of the upgrade project, Q9 is also now in a position to support customer networking requirements up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbps).

IPv6 is a new Internet addressing protocol that will enable the continued rapid growth of the Internet.  The new protocol provides a number of benefits, including almost unlimited addressing capacity and better security. On June 8, 2011, Q9 will join with other leading Internet industry participants and the Internet Society in supporting “World IPv6 Day”, a global trial of the new protocol.

“The launch of IPv6 is a significant transition in the evolution of the Internet,” says Q9 Chief Executive Officer, Osama Arafat. “We have invested considerable resources to ensure our customers’ transition to the new standard is as seamless as possible and to expand our network capabilities to 10 Gbps so we can support their future growth requirements.”
