ZyXEL unveils IPv6 upgrade for business security gateways and Ethernet switches

Telecom Lead America: ZyXEL Communications, a
networking company, has announced IPv6 support for its complete line of
business security gateways (USG series), as well as its managed gigabit
Ethernet switches (GS2200 series).


The company said that the IPv6-certified software upgrade
is available to all current ZyXEL customers for free.


As all the major websites and companies gear up to
permanently migrate to IPv6 starting this June, ZyXEL upgraded its security and
switches to IPv6 so its business customers and channel partners are ready for
the transition.


“Our relationship with channel partners and business
customers doesn’t end with the sale, that’s just the beginning. We evaluate our
customers’ needs on an ongoing basis, which is why we’re offering our latest
IPv6-certified software upgrade for free. IPv6 is the way of the new Internet
and we are committed to making it available to all our business customers and
partners,” said Steven Joe, executive vice president of channel business
for Americas at ZyXEL.


ZyXEL USG series is a comprehensive line of eight
firewall / VPN and UTM devices for small to mid-size businesses, ranging from 5
to 500 users.


ZyXEL carrier-grade GS2200 series of
24- and 48-port high-density managed Ethernet switches offers
SMBs a gigabit switching solution with the best features-per-dollar ratio in
the industry.


The solution includes a non-blocking 56 Gbps switching
fabric for wire-speed performance and four dual personality slots for
deployment flexibility with copper or fiber uplink for long loop reach


ZyXEL’s dual-stack IPv6 implementation approach across
its product line allows businesses to operate both IPv4 and IPv6 devices on
their network, offering maximum migration flexibility.


Recently, ZyXEL Communications integrated Commtouch’s cloud-based anti-spam and Web filtering
solutions into its ZyWALL Unified Security Gateway product line.
