Interoute and GENBAND announced an agreement to deliver an official IPv6 VoIP network in Europe.
Supporting IPv6 through the S3 Session Border Controller (SBC), GENBAND will enable Interoute to extend its existing Carrier IP Interconnect and SIP Business Trunking solution reliably into its Next Generation IPv4 and IPv6 native network.
“With better support for mobility and multimedia applications, IPv6 is crucial to enable the fast growth of VoIP for mobile operators as every mobile terminal and application within these terminals can now have a unique IP address,” said Matthew Finnie, CTO, Interoute. We are pleased to join with GENBAND to build what we believe to be the first IPv6 VoIP network in Europe to date.”
By interworking between IPv4 and IPv6 while maintaining security and enhanced routing capabilities, GENBAND’s S3 enables Interoute to interconnect operators and enterprises using IPv4 with operators and enterprises that are using IPv6 networks.
