We are proud to announce that TM is now ready for IPv6 by implementing Dual Stack platform for UniFi and Streamyx starting 27 September 2013 for NOVA and ICP.
The usage of Internet has increased tremendously over the past few years. As the number of devices being connected to the Internet increases, the current IP which is the IPv4 is not able to accommodate addresses. IPv6 is the next generation of IP that will replace the current IPv4 and eliminate IP address exhaustion problem.
As the Internet progressively becomes a dual IPv4/IPv6 network, ensuring that users are IPv6-enabled will be critical for retaining universal Internet connectivity. However, IPv4 and IPv6 are two completely separate protocols and do not support each other. Thus, in order to address this issue, TM is implementing dual stack platform.
With the implementation of Dual-Stack platform, TM users will receive both IPv6 and IPv4 addresses. It allows users to simultaneously reach IPv4 and IPv6 content and offers very flexible coexistence strategy to support transition from IPv4 to IPv6. The network will continue to work as per normal with no effect on billing and internet connection. For more info on IPv6 and Dual-Stack, click here.
