logo-interrouteInteroute is the owner operator of Europe’s most advanced and densely connected voice and data network, encompassing over 57,000 kms of lit fibre and 59 data centres.

Its full-service next generation network serves more than 12,000 customers across a broad range of sectors from finance to retail and every major European incumbent, as well as the major operators of North America, East and South Asia, governments, universities and research agencies.

Interoute, owner operator of Europe’s largest next-generation network, has increased the capacity of its network to include native support for the incoming IPv6 Internet protocol.

Matthew Finnie, Interoute’s joint CTO/CIO commented, “By incorporating IPv6 capability into our network we are a step ahead of forecasts made by industry analysts who estimate that the range of possible new addresses for IPv4 may reach a limit as early as 2011. The investment in a native IPv6 capability is testament to Interoute’s commitment to ensuring its customers have access to the most advanced services from Europe’s most advanced network.”

Interoute’s Native IPv6 service means that any customer wanting to adopt this next generation protocol will be able to. In addition, Interoute will not make any additional charge for enabling IPv6 over and above the standard tariff.
