Welcome to the Future of the Internet

As we near the date when the last IPv4 address is assigned to a new subscriber at the regional level (RIR), service providers must maintain and continue to accelerate growth. Billions of new devices such as mobile phones, portable multimedia devices, sensors, and controllers will demand Internet connectivity in the next five years.

The Cisco Carrier-Grade IPv6 Solution (CGv6) is designed to help address these challenges. With Cisco CGv6, you can:

  • Preserve investments in IPv4 infrastructure, assets, and delivery models
  • Prepare for the smooth, incremental transition to IPv6 services that are interoperable with IPv4
  • Prosper through accelerated subscriber, device, and service growth that are enabled by the efficiencies that IPv6 can deliver

Cisco CGv6 extends the already wide array of IPv6 platforms, solutions, and services. Cisco SP IPv6 portfolio includes Carrier-Grade Services Engine (CGSE) for the CRS family, as well as new features for the ASR family and dual stack support on SP product families. Cisco CGv6 helps you build a bridge to the future of the Internet with IPv6.
