Making IPv6 a Reality in Our Region

By John Sweeting

As many of you know, we will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary this December. Since we were formed in 1997, one of the most critical objectives our organization has worked towards is spreading awareness of IPv4 depletion and encouraging the widespread implementation of IPv6. We want to take some time at our anniversary to reflect on how far our community has come in making IPv6 a reality in our region, as well as what we’re doing to go even farther.

In the early 1990’s, it became clear that the world would eventually run out of IPv4 addresses. IPv6 was formalized as a protocol in 1998 to provide enough addresses for continued growth of the Internet. With IPv4 depletion on the horizon, ARIN began really emphasizing the importance of adopting IPv6 in May 2007 when our Board passed a Resolution to encourage networks to implement IPv6. With the help of volunteers from the ARIN Advisory Council, ARIN staff mapped out a plan to attend a large number of outreach events that included some of the largest Internet conferences in the region. During the calendar year of 2010, ARIN was present at 23 different outreach events starting with CES in January and including InterOp, IT Roadmap, Rocky Mountain IPv6, CANTO, FOSE, Open Source Convention, and HostingCon, among others. The message was clear – IPv4 addresses will no longer be available and IPv6 adoption is necessary for the Internet’s continued growth. We’ve continued to spread that message to this day.

The ARIN region ran out of IPv4 on 24 September 2015. Today, 3,098 ARIN members (~56%) have registered an IPv6 block. While we’re happy with that progress, we know we can do more. We’re continuing our IPv6 outreach campaign. We’re continuing to make sure the community’s aware that IPv6 fees are minimal and that registering an IPv6 block makes them eligible to request addresses via the reserved IPv4 block to facilitate IPv6 deployment policy (NRPM 4.10). And today, we’re proud to announce a new campaign. Approximately 2,500 of our members without IPv6 are eligible to receive a block with no additional cost. We plan on implementing a new campaign to reach out to these members with a personal invitation to help them receive that free IPv6 block.

We’re incredibly pleased with the ARIN community’s progress with IPv6 deployment, but we still have work to do to make IPv6 ubiquitous. Together with you, the members of the ARIN community, on our 20th anniversary we’re proud to commit ourselves to work harder than ever to spread the message of IPv6 adoption in the years to come.

ProLabs launches a high-performance NBase-T copper compatible transceiver

By News Aggregator

By Zenobia Hegde

The provider of compatible optical networking infrastructure, ProLabs, has introduced its latest development to the world of transceivers with its new high-speed SFP- NBase-T transceiver.

Ideal for bi-directional communication over copper cable, the NBase-T transceiver module is a high-performance integrated duplex data link, with the ability to support 2.5G transfer speeds at cable lengths of up to 100M using Cat5e cabling and 5G using Cat 6 Cabling.

“More than 90% of structured cabling installed between 2003-2014 (approximately 70 billion meters) has been CAT5/6, with current technologies’ throughput on these cable types limited to 1Gbps. This will be a bottleneck to delivering bandwidth available from end points such as 802.11ac that have the capability to deliver greater than 1.3 Gbps with Wave 1 and greater than 2.3 Gbps with emerging Wave 2 products,” said Tony Lefebvre, VP Products & Marketing at ProLabs.

“Rather than incur the time and expense of replacing existing plant with CAT6A/7 or fiber, the NBase-T transceiver solution from ProLabs enables customers to use existing SFP+ port on their network equipment and connect over existing CAT5/6, delivering 2.5/5Gbps throughput. With the NBASE-T transceiver solution, customers can greatly increase their time-to-service and defer costly re-cabling.”

With the advent of 802.11ac with Wave 2 Wi-Fi Access Point (AP) products delivering greater than 2.3 Gbps, customers need to address the backhaul connectivity which in the case of CAT5/6 is limited to 1Gbps with current technologies. When replacing existing previous generation AP’s, the NBASE-T transceiver enables customers to keep their CAT5/6 infrastructure intact while delivering the throughput required by the newly added 802.11ac AP.

HD CCTV and high-performance computing also benefit from NBase-T’s greater throughput, allowing these and other bandwidth hungry applications to run at a higher rate over existing infrastructure, not only improving end user quality of experience but deferring costly cabling infrastructure replacement programs.

The IEEE-802.3bz/NBase-T transceiver is SFF-8431 and SF-8432 MSA compliant with low power consumption and EMI emissions. It also features MDI/MDIX crossover with unshielded and shielded cable support, multiple loopback modes for testing and troubleshooting, built-in cable monitoring and link diagnostic features, and robust die cast housing.

Calix AXOS accelerates past 100 Gfast service provider deployments

By Zenobia Hegde

Calix, Inc. announced it has accelerated past the 100 service provider deployment milestone for its AXOS Gfast solutions faster than any other vendor. Armed with Calix AXOS Gfast solutions, which simplify the delivery of new services, service providers globally are cost-effectively upgrading their offerings to a true symmetrical gigabit experience in challenging multi-dwelling unit (MDU) environments. By leveraging the Calix Gfast portfolio, the copper and coaxial cable infrastructure in many MDUs is no longer an obstacle to deployment, allowing service providers to offer a unified gigabit marketing message across their markets, and reap the benefits of AXOS, the world’s only Software Defined Access (SDA) platform, to deliver Always On services to all subscribers in record time.

One example of a service provider taking advantage of game-changing Calix technology is Skywire Networks, a division of Xchange Telecom. Based in Brooklyn and serving the surrounding areas of New York City and New Jersey, Skywire is often challenged to bring advanced broadband services to residents and businesses in older MDU buildings where the in-building network infrastructure is extremely out of date.

Through an innovative vision of bringing connectivity to these buildings wirelessly via fixed millimeter wave radios, the Company is utilising Calix AXOS Gfast solutions to provide fiber-like speeds to their subscribers within the buildings without the cost of rewiring the building.

“Even though we serve buildings in some of the largest cities in the country, many MDUs in our area are lacking adequate connectivity coming into their locations due to aging infrastructure and high costs to upgrade. It’s an area we like to call the ‘Digital Desert’,” said Alfred West, co-founder and chairman of Skywire Networks, a division of Xchange Telecom.

“However, through the fixed wireless connection to our buildings and the Calix AXOS Gfast solutions inside the MDUs, we can provide the high-speed services our customers are asking for, even business SLAs that rival those of a fiber network. Better yet, we can do it in the fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost through Gfast.“

With the latest additions of the industry’s first 48-port, Amendment 3 Gfast solutions to the Calix AXOS Gfast portfolio, service providers like Xchange can more cost-effectively serve subscribers in higher-density MDUs such as those found in large cities. The E3-48F Gfast Remote Node (sealed DPU) and E5-48F Gfast Nodes leverage the frequency range up to 212 MHz, which doubles broadband speeds over copper and, when deployed with Calix cDTA and bonding technologies, delivers symmetrical speeds of up to 2 Gbps to subscribers.

When combined with the Calix E3-16F and E5-16F Gfast nodes, the Calix AXOS Gfast portfolio comprises the industry’s largest number of Gfast tested configurations in the Broadband Forum Gfast Certification Program, and the broadest and most mature set of Gfast solutions on the market, further accelerating time-to-market for service providers with pre-tested, interoperable solutions.

“The deployment challenges for MDUs have been daunting for the industry as a whole, and Gfast has proven to be an efficient and cost-effective method to bring subscribers an unmatched broadband experience, no matter […]
