HP Ensures Business Continuity for Clients Switching to IPv6
HP announced new services, based upon its extensive networking and data center experience, that allow clients to seamlessly transition to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), speeding connectivity to customers and partners. The rapid growth of online users and smart devices has contributed to the dwindling availability of Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) web addresses. With IPv4 exhaustion quickly approaching, organizations must be prepared to support IPv6 to stay competitive and communicate with new and existing customers operating in IPv6. Yet many organizations have concerns about disrupting their existing network or introducing security vulnerabilities during the transition. New HP Network Consulting for IPv6 services help eliminate the obstacles organizations face as they transition to IPv6. HP’s phased approach takes clients from IPv4, to a dual-protocol environment and ultimately to IPv6 only, ensuring seamless connectivity, business continuity and minimized risk.
