Mission-Critical Data Services Provider Achieves v6 Corporate Compliance as Part of Aggressive Campaign for World IPv6 Day, June 8, 2011

NEW YORK, NY March 16, 2011—NYI (www.nyi.net), a New York City-based, mission-critical data services provider, today announced IPv6 corporate compliance, the company’s latest milestone in its aggressive campaign to support World IPv6 Day, June 8, 2011. The news comes on the heels of NYI’s February announcement of full client support of the new network protocol that replaces the depleted supply of Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) addresses with a brand-new pool that offers such functionality as improved performance rate and security as well as reduced latency.

By achieving corporate compliance, NYI’s principal web presence is now v6 reachable, placing it at the forefront of supporters who understand the importance of raising awareness.

“NYI is among the growing list of companies making IPv6 available for commercial use,” said Leslie Daigle, Chief Internet Technology Officer of the Internet Society. “Companies who recognize the business imperative of forward progress for Internet technologies such as the deployment of IPv6 provide an example to the industry for others to follow.”

“The Internet Society has done a fantastic job of bringing IPv6 to the forefront,” added Phillip Koblence, VP Operations, NYI. “With World IPv6 Day, they have created a groundswell of attention that no one in technology can ignore. We all owe them a depth of gratitude for what they’ve done and look forward to doing whatever else we can to supporting their mandate.”
