bintec "goes" IPv6

What objectives is bintec elmeg GmbH pursuing with its IPv6 implementation?

We want to support you, our customer, by

  • giving you a chance to gain experience with IPv6
  • giving you the opportunity to implement IPv6 at the right time
  • helping you avoid confusion as a result of unnecessary IPv6 functions
  • helping you ensure the security of your IPv6 network
  • providing optimal support for your IPv6 implementation

These considerations have led bintec elmeg GmbH to structure its IPv6 implementation in accordance with what will initially be the most important scenarios for you. In selecting these scenarios, a great deal of emphasis was also placed on achieving a simple and thus cost-effective migration strategy.

You can start with Scenario 1 to gain some initial experience and test the IPv6 compatibility of your network components. After successfully completing this stage, it's possible to make the transition to the next scenario without making extensive changes to your first scenario. In this manner, you can migrate your network step by step with no downtime.

Scenario 1: IPv4 / IPv6 at LAN

Concurrent usage of IPv4 and IPv6 at LAN (Dual Stack LAN)

Scenario 2: Concurrent use of IPv4 and IPv6 at LAN and WAN

Concurrent use of IPv4 and IPv6 at LAN as well as WAN (Dual Stack LAN & WAN)

Scenario 3: VPN connection at IPv4 / IPv6

Secure interconnection of locations. Transfer of IPv4 / IPv6 data between locations via VPN-(IPSec)-tunnel.

Scenario 4: Stateful Inspection Firewall at IPv4 / IPv6

bintec zone concept provides network security at IPv6 environment even without NAT.

Scenario 5: DHCPv6 Server

Simple distribution of IPv6 addresses via DHCPv6 at the network. The DHCP server allows fixed allocation of an IPv6 address and of a domain name to one IPv6 host.
