Dyn partners with D-Link to further IPv6 adoption


Dyn announced that they have furthered their partnership
with long-time client, D-Link, by including a built in dynamic DNS update
client in select home networking routers that will automatically update and
support the use of IPv6 addresses for dynamic DNS hostnames.


This integration will continue to push forward the
adoption of IPv6 and provide a seamless transition from IPv4 for home users.


IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4) is the most publically
used Internet Protocol and is currently the foundation of most Internet
communications. With the continued fast-paced growth of the Internet however,
there has been an anticipated exhaustion in the number of IPv4 addresses


The development and deployment of IPv6 will allow many
more options for IP address creation, make traffic routing more efficient and
overall support a stronger core Internet infrastructure that will last much
longer than previous Internet Protocol versions.


While the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 will be gradual,
top websites and Internet Service Providers, like those who participated in
World IPv6 Day, are helping to push along the adoption by making sure their
sites are IPv6 compatible.


By purchasing one of D-Link’s IPv6 enabled routers with
the Dyn update
client inside, such as the D-Link DIR-655, users will automatically have A”
(for IPv4) and AAAA” (for IPv6) DNS records created for their dynamic DNS


As the world leader in enterprise
Infrastructure-as-a-Service, we’re committed to technical advancement at every
layer of our technology stack in support of a more scalable Internet,” said
Cory von Wallenstein, VP of Product Management, Dyn.


The public availability of IPv6-enabled dynamic DNS, made
particularly seamless for end-users through Dyn’s integration and partnership
with D-Link, is an important milestone on the path to ubiquitous IPv6 availability.


The integration of an IPv6 enabled router is just one of
the ways Dyn and D-Link plan to move the needle on IPv6 adoption, a technology
and protocol that will benefit the Internet and those that use and depend on it
to operate at peak performance every day.


Partnering with Dyn underscores D-Link’s commitment to
making the IPv6 transition seamless for individuals, business owners and ISPs,
ensuring uninterrupted Internet access,” said William Brown, associate vice
president of product development, D-Link North America.


Dyn’s significant IPv6 investments complement D-Link’s
leadership role in IPv6 adoption and together, both companies are bringing
interoperability, speed and security to home users.
