Verio says this is a unique managed commercial service for North America and its IPv6-enabled products will help businesses, government agencies and educational institutions use VPS and MPS for IPv6 network testing, as well as new product and application development environments for upgrading IT infrastructures to the next generation protocol for the Internet.
"Together with NTT Communications, Verio has shown a strong commitment to IPv6 since 1996 when NTT Labs started one of the world's largest IPv6 research networks," says Kiyoshi Maeda, president and chief executive officer for Verio.
"Verio believes the time is imminent for businesses in North America to begin planning for a transition to IPv6. Our virtual and managed server solutions offer a fully-managed platform for these businesses to test IPv6 with no risk for a smooth, gradual transition from IPv4."
According to industry reports, the availability of IPv4 addresses are slowly diminishing, which is generating a strong demand for IPv6 connectivity in Asia and Europe, with North America to follow in the coming years. Verio is offering IPv6 immediately for all new FreeBSD-based VPS v3 and MPS v3 hosting solutions at no additional charge.
