New customers get Ziggo standard IPv6 in the future




Ziggo is standard with new customers in the future of IPv6 addresses, instead of IPv4. So says the cable company to Tweakers. Already getting some of the new customers ipv6, what the provider is operated via DS-lite.

Although some users now have IPv6 dual stack through and so both IPv4 and IPv6 address assigned, Ziggo switches in the future all over on ds-lite for offering IPv6. In addition, customers receive an external IPv6 address and the IPv4 address ‘private’, similar to LAN addresses, so it is not accessible from the Internet. It works via cg wet.

Ziggo tells Tweakers that “less than one percent of the new customers’ burden derives from the fact that there is no more accessible externally ipv4 address. This involves customers who try to access from outside the equipment at home, for example with a home server or a VPN that runs at home via the fixed Internet.

Not everybody runs into problems, said spokeswoman Maaike Scholten. “Applications that operate IPv6 will co-operate fully. The vast majority of legacy IPv4-only applications only uses outbound connections and will continue to work unabated in ds-lite.” Ziggo promises to occur customers with complaints of ds-lite individually with a solution, for example by switching back to IPv4. Some of the new customers now receive equal ipv6 addresses, when it will apply to all customers, Ziggo has not yet said.

Ziggo although it does not explicitly mention, it seems that the cable company is taking this step because of the increasingly scarce IPv4 addresses. UPC was the merger even though some time working on the transition to IPv6. The cable company says it aims to minimize customer to make possible or not notice the transition to IPv6.
