Ljubljana, Slovenia- October 12, 2009 - Fremont, Calif-based Hurricane Electric,
the world's leading IPv6-native Internet backbone and colocation provider, today announced
that its Director of IPv6 Strategy, Martin Levy, will deliver the keynote address at the
Slovenian IPv6 Summit on Tuesday, October
13, 2009 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The summit is being sponsored by the go6 Institute, a
not-for-profit institution dedicated to pushing IPv6 deployment in Slovenia.|
"Slovenia's IPv6 initiative has been very successful and is becoming a blue-print for IPv6 initiatives in other countries worldwide," said Martin Levy, Hurricane Electric's Director of IPv6 Strategy. "It's a great honor to address this group at their second IPv6 summit."
Hurricane Electric first deployed IPv6 on its global backbone in 2001, and the company now interconnects over 500 associated IPv6 backbones - nearly twice as many as its nearest rivals. Hurricane Electric is one of the few global Internet backbones that is IPv6 native and does not rely on internal tunnels for its IPv6 connectivity. IPv6 at Hurricane Electric is a core service and every customer is provided IPv6 connectivity as well as classic IPv4 connectivity.
In addition to offering enterprises free IPv6 certification, in July Hurricane Electric released an IPv4 depletion Application for the iPhone and Google Android platform and additional tools to educate CIOs and network administrators about the urgency of this transition.
