InterNetX uses the technology of tomorrow with IPv6

June 15, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Webmaster ToolboxREGENSBURG – InterNetX is one of the leading providers in Germany of the Internet Protocol version 6 (short: IPv6), the successor of the communication technology IPv4, which is currently phasing out. InterNetX has been investing in this since 2004, expanding the company’s Tier 3 data center in Munich. InterNetX already offers customers the opportunity of transferring data via IPv6 through the Tier 3 data center.

A total of 4,3 billion IP addresses are available in the IPv4 address space. However, this capacity is coming to an end. For several years now, InterNetX has therefore built on the successive technology IPv6 that has developed into the standard of the future. Aside from providing virtually unlimited IP addresses, IPv6 also delivers considerable advantages for multi media applications, mobile end devices and the protection of privacy on the Internet.
