BlueCat Networks, the IPAM Intelligence™ company, today announced a North American IPv6 Roadshow to address the growing need for organizations to prepare now for the transition to IPv6, the largest network and services changeover in the history of the Internet. To further promote IPv6 readiness and the role of IP Address Management in IPv6 planning and implementation, BlueCat Networks has enabled IPv6 connectivity to its corporate Web site at http://ipv6.bluecatnetworks.com in advance of World IPv6 Day on June 8.
With scheduled stops in 24 cities across the United States and Canada, the BlueCat Networks' IPV Roadshow will kick off with a seminar in Toronto on June 14. BlueCat Networks' co-founder and CTO, Richard Hyatt, an international authority on IPv6, will make the business case for IPv6 and discuss how IP Address Management (IPAM) is an essential technology for IPv6 readiness. To learn more about the Roadshow visit www.bluecatnetworks.com/solutions/ipv6/roadshow. BlueCat Networks will also be hosting a webinar on June 22, 2011 entitled "Getting Ready for IPv6." To register for the webinar, visit www.bluecatnetworks.com/ipv6ready.
In support of World IPv6 Day, the global test flight of IPv6 readiness sponsored by The Internet Society, BlueCat Networks has partnered with Cogeco Data Services, a business communication solutions provider, to supply the company with a block of IPv6 addresses and IPv6-enabled connectivity. BlueCat Networks used its own IPv6-ready IP Address Management (IPAM) solutions to enable its IPv6 Web presence.
"The successful transition to IPv6 will require shared expertise and teamwork on the part of customers, solution providers and Internet Service Providers," said Virginia Brailey, Vice President, Marketing and Communications, Cogeco Data Services. "The experience we are gaining in testing IPv6 with BlueCat Networks, in support of World IPv6 Day, will provide us with insights and learning as it relates to IPv6 functionality."
"BlueCat Networks is excited to participate in World IPv6 Day along with industry leaders like Cisco, Google, Facebook and Yahoo," said Richard Hyatt, CTO of BlueCat Networks. "We have been vocal advocates for planning and preparedness to ensure a smooth and seamless transition to IPv6. Now we are taking our message of IPv6 readiness on the road with stops in 24 cities across North America. The goal of the IPv6 Roadshow is to encourage organizations to start planning now for the inevitable transition and show them how to get there with IP Address Management. If organizations wait, they risk losing global connectivity with customers, partners and suppliers who are already adopting and using IPv6."
"[IPv6 adoption] is about remaining relevant and competitive," said Forrester Research Inc. "Technology that enables the real-time, dynamic flow of information is critical for top- and bottom-line growth. IPv6 provides ten technology benefits over its predecessor IPv4 and promises to help businesses tap into a new set of customers, such as the large untapped customer base in Asia, which connects to the Internet with IPv6-only devices..."

BlueCat Networks' IP Address Management (IPAM) solutions provide an essential technology for helping organizations effectively prepare for and deploy IPv6. BlueCat Networks' IPAM solutions enable organizations to discover their existing IPv4 and IPv6 space, model the new IPv6 network, track pure IPv6 and dual-stacked IPv4/IPv6 systems and simplify the management of IPv6 addresses. BlueCat Networks' IPv6-ready DNS and DHCP solutions also support the IPv6 naming and addressing infrastructure.
