SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A10 Networks™, the technology leader in Application Networking, today announced that Ericsson, the world's leading provider of telecommunications equipment technology and services, selected A10 Networks as a global partner and has finalized a global reseller agreement. A10's AX Series Application Networking Platform is formally certified and chosen as the official IPv6 migration and Carrier Grade NAT (CGNAT) solution of choice for Ericsson's global base of telecom operator customers.
With the recent depletion of IPv4 addresses, Ericsson customers must find a way to preserve and leverage existing IPv4 addresses or migrate to IPv6 to meet critical business requirements and offer additional differentiated services. Through the partnership with A10, Ericsson's customers have multiple options within the AX Series platforms to address IPv4 exhaustion and ensure that their customers' communication and connectivity demands can be met.
The AX Series are energy-efficient appliances with the industry's highest performance for IPv4 preservation solutions, such as Carrier Grade NAT (CGNAT / CGN), also known as Large Scale NAT (LSN), in addition to IPv6 migration solutions, such as NAT64/DNS64, DS-Lite, 6RD, and NAT46. A10's CGNAT technology is a mature solution that maximizes existing IPv4 allocations, from the first AX Series CGN deployments that went live in 2010, to the dozens of deployments that have followed since at major service providers all around the world.
"We selected A10 Networks as it delivers the most capable solution," said Melih Tufan, Head of Product Line Packet Networks at Ericsson. "We look forward to a successful partnership with A10 to deliver powerful, carrier class IPv4/IPv6 solutions to help our global customers preserve investments while providing a clear path to IPv6, efficiently and affordably."
"We are very proud to partner with Ericsson, the world's leading provider of telecom equipment and services, to deliver the most scalable, efficient and affordable IPv4 preservation and IPv6 migration solutions on the market today," said Lee Chen, Founder and CEO for A10 Networks. "While we've worked closely together on previous opportunities over the years, our Global agreement and partnership is now official so that customers can be confident to immediately engage on IPv6 Migration solutions with Ericsson and A10."
