CKLN Implements IPv6

June 26, 2014

CKLN has concluded the configuration of iPv6 on C@ribNET and both ipv4 and ipv6 protocols will be running simultaneously.
IPv4 stands for Internet Protocol version 4 and is the underlying technology that makes it possible for users to connect devices to the web. Every device (mobile phone, tablet, laptop etc.) has an assigned, unique, numerical IP address and this enables the sending of data from one computer/device to another through the web.
On June 10, the Internet Address Registry for Latin America and the Caribbean, LACNIC, the organization responsible for assigning Internet resources in the region, announced that IPv4 addresses are now exhausted for Latin American and Caribbean operators.  They said,  “The need to deploy IPv6 is now more pressing than ever. It cannot be delayed any longer if connectivity providers still wish to meet the demands of their customers and those of new users.”


With CKLN’s implementation of IPv6, there is now has a larger range of IP addresses available for users on C@ribNET.
