Telstra is now providing business and wholesale customers with Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) connectivity – the next generation of newer, longer web addresses. 

The service will be available to all other Telstra broadband users “over time,” it confirmed. 
This will help overcome the impending shortage of current IPv4 addresses globally, the Telco said today. 
Telstra’s internet backbone is now fully “dual-stacked” meaning users can connect with IPv4, the existing system, or IPv6, for the first time. 
Customers that choose to opt-in to IPv6, will have access to the global IPv6 internet, including connectivity to multiple providers, but shouldn’t notice any difference in the change over, Telstra insist. 
 Being dual stacked gives customers the current reliability of IPv4 as they commence the transition to IPv6, says Director Transport and Routing, David Robertson. 
“Currently IPv4 offers 32 bits for an internet address, with IPv6 an internet address has 128 bits. This means that with IPv4 there were about 4 billion internet addresses, with IPv6 there are more internet addresses than grains of sand on the planet.” 
“The deployment of IPv6 into the network is an on-going program of work, and we’ll make this available for other networks such as DSL and our wireless networks over time. 
“By dual stacking IPv4 and IPv6 in our network, customers can opt into IPv6 in their own time, and according to the lifecycle upgrade of their existing equipment. 
Most customers won’t notice the change to IPv6, he added. 
 

Telstra will be working with customers who have expressed an interest in moving to IPv6 to help them through the transition but will need to opt-out if they wish to continue using IPv4.

 “In coming years we expect that IPv6 will become the norm,” declared Robertson.
