Cox (www.cox.com) reports it is prepared to support the next evolution of Internet addressing, IPv6. The company is conducting active trials with Cox Business customers and plans to extend the trials to its residential product line in the future. Cox's core network is fully IPv6 compliant, and the company is transitioning the network edge and support infrastructure to meet customer demand.

"By migrating to IPv6, Cox is future-proofing its network, systems and products," Jason Weil, principal architect at the MSO, said. "Cox's dual-stack IPv6 deployment allows customers the ability to continue leveraging their current IPv4 capability while incrementally adding the IPv6 support required for the next generation of network devices and applications."
