TP-LINK Readies Its Line of IPv6-Compliant Routers

The networking solutions provider touts the benefits of IPv6 in addressing IP addresses shortages and in offering improved privacy and security features.

Networking solutions provider TP-LINK is improving its line or routers to comply with the IPv6 standards. In a press release submitted to ChannelPro-SMB, TP-LINK says it is ready with “a family of new and established networking products that comply with IPv6 by default or through firmware upgrades.”

The IPv6 protocol offers a near-limitless number of addresses as well as many new services, including privacy, security, multicasting, and quality of service (QoS) features.

With IPv6 each device has its own unique, globally accessible IPv6 address. IPv4, on the other hand, enables devices to share the same IP address through network address translation (NAT).

“With the increasing number of new devices being connected to the Internet, the number of available IP addresses using the original IPv4 standard has been depleted,” the company states. “The exhaustion of IPv4 addresses makes support for IPv6 essential.”†

Touting the benefits of IPv6 technology, TP-LINK is promoting its IPv6 Ready dual-band router.
Current routers supporting IPv6 include the N600 TL-WDR 3500/3600 dual band router, the N750 TL-WDR4300 dual band gigabit router, and the N900 TL-WDR4900 dual band gigabit router.

TP-LINK also offers a family of ASDL products that support IPv6. These include the TD-W8968 300Mbps Wireless N USB ADSL2+ Modem Router, the TD-W8970 300Mbps Wireless N Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router, and the TD-W8980 N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router.

All products support IPv6 features (such as DHCP, Static, PPPoE, 6to4 and 6rd), which are applied by Internet Service Providers. TP-LINK is actively researching and developing more transition mechanism technologies and is a member of the IPv6 Ready Logo Program, which brands products for IPv6 compatibility and interoperability. ††
