NTT America Supports Further IPv6 Development and Migration
New York, NY – NTT America, a wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation, today announced the company’s continuous support of commercial IPv6 technology development and implementation. Affirming NTT America’s position, NTT Communications presented its foresight and expertise on commercial IPv6 technology development and implementation at the 30th Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC), held January 13-16, 2008 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Shin Miyakawa, Director of the Innovative IP Architecture Center for NTT Communications, presented in the session on the topic, “IPv6: The New Internet Business Vision & Roadmap,” on Tuesday, January 15th at 8:30 a.m. HST. At the session, Mr. Miyakwa addressed the technical and business issues at stake when designing IPv6 strategies for large ISPs, network service providers and corporate enterprises.
NTT Communications Group has been directly involved with the development and deployment of IPv6 technology since 1996. With the launch of IPv6 transit services in 2001 and the first IPv6 managed firewall solution in 2005, which was provided by NTT America, NTT Communications Group established itself as the global leader in commercial IPv6 managed services solutions.
“NTT Communications Group is a pioneer in IPv6 development and real world implementation,” said Shin Miyakawa, Director of the Innovative IP Architecture Center for NTT Communications. “We are pleased to share our expertise acquired through successful commercial IPv6 network operation at PTC 2008.”
“Migration to IPv6 has not been as swift as we anticipated to date,” said Kazuhiro Gomi, Vice President of the Global IP Network for NTT America. “However, limitations of IPv4 may hinder further growth of the Internet and various IP applications in the long run. We will continue providing services to support people and organizations who are adopting IPv6, leveraging our leadership and knowledge in integrating IPv6 on an existing wide-area network.”
