FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA — (Marketwire) — 06/07/11 — D-Link, the cost-effective, standards-based unified networking solutions provider for consumers, small businesses, medium enterprises and service providers, demonstrates its leadership in transition to IPv6 at The Cable Show 2011 in Chicago on June 14-16 (booth #2136). Due to D-Link’s leadership role with IPv6-readiness, the company was invited to participate in a panel discussion about the implications and impact of the IPv6 migration at the IPv6 Symposium. In addition, a live demonstration of D-Link’s IPv6 solutions will be conducted in the IPv6 Pavilion during the show. The large suite of D-LinkĀ® IPv6-compatible consumer, business and service provider products will also be on display in the D-Link booth, including the D-Link DCM-301 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem and DCM-704b DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Gateway.


IPv6 is a new version of the Internet Protocol designed to succeed Internet IPv4, which is projected to exhaust all available IP addresses by the end of 2011. In addition to providing enough addresses so every device today and in the future has a unique address, IPv6 offers a wide range of improvements, including increased network speeds and accessibility, significant security enhancements, simplified network management, and seamless communication between IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

“Cable service providers are dedicated to providing customers with future-proof technology to ensure the best service possible, making The Cable Show 2011 an ideal venue to focus on the importance of transitioning to IPv6-compatible solutions,” said Eli Gavra, general manager, Service Provider Business Unit, D-Link North America. “D-Link is an early adopter of IPv6 with a number of products already IPv6-ready, and through our relationships and field trials with the tier-one North American cable service providers, we deliver future-proof solutions for service providers, businesses and consumers.”

Claire Cheng, senior product planner, D-Link Corporation, will be participating in a panel discussion about the implications and impact of the IPv6 migration in the IPv6 Symposium on June 14 at 8:30 a.m. (room S404). Joined by industry experts from Best Buy, Facebook, Premier Communications, and Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., Cheng will address the significant IPv6 changes for web content providers, device manufacturers, network operators, and consumers.

D-Link will showcase its wide array of IPv6-compatible products in booth #2136, including the DIR-655 and DIR-825 routers, DHP-W306AV PowerLine AV Wireless N Extender, DHP-1320 A1 Wireless N PowerLine Router, DCS-6111 IP surveillance camera, DCM-301 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem, and DCM-704b DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Gateway.

D-Link Products for Consumers, Small Businesses and Service Providers Offering one of the industry’s largest portfolios of consumer products shipping with “IPv6 Ready Phase II” certification, D-Link has a range of IPv6-compliant routers, access points and powerline communication devices for the home. The company’s newest networking switches and IP surveillance cameras designed for small businesses and medium enterprise IT environments also feature IPv6 interoperability. In addition, D-Link is deploying products and conducting field test trials with many leading phone and cable service providers worldwide to ensure Internet service performance, security and overall reliability during the IPv6 transition.

World IPv6 Day

To help support a smooth IPv6 transition, D-Link is participating in World IPv6 Day on June 8, 2011, where several major Web providers and other industry players will offer content over IPv6 for a 24-hour “test flight.” Throughout the event, D-Link will monitor activities to discover and address any potential issues, as well as raise awareness of the need for IPv6 readiness. The goal is to motivate organizations across the industry — ISPs, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies — to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition.
