"The ability to employ IPv6 across our entire network nationwide is critical to Comcast. Our deployment of IPv6 with the C4 CMTS platform has been smooth and successful," said
Operators can choose the manner in which they utilize IPv6 with the C4 CMTS, including cable modem management and dual-stack CPE behind the cable modem. The C4 CMTS supports a broad set of IPv6 features including options for the IPv6 Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP), Prefix Delegation and Prefix Stability, and many others – all of which operate at scale. IPv6 deployment with the C4 CMTS is expanding rapidly worldwide as operators deplete their IPv4 resources including those providing services over cable or DOCSIS®. No other CMTS platform has a similar level of IPv6 deployment.
"Over the past two years we've worked closely with our customers to plan IPv6 feature support for our C4 CMTS portfolio," said
Since 1981, IPv4 has been the publicly used Internet Protocol and is currently the foundation for most Internet communications. The exponential growth of the Internet and the traffic it enables has created a need for more addresses, from the billions to the trillions, and IPv6 fills that need.
