Network Box USA Gets IPv6 Ready

If you are not familiar with IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6), you will be soon. The current standard, IPv4, is almost out of available addresses, and IPv6 is in line to succeed IPv4. "Imagine a company moves its office, to find they can only get an IPv6 Internet connection to their new office," says Pierluigi Stella, CTO of Network Box USA.

Network Box will soon be rolling out its Version Five systems to solve that problem immediately. "IPv4 and IPv6 are completely incompatible," Stella says.
