.nz offers IPv6 connectivity
Posted on 13-Jun-2007 10:52. | Tags Filed under: News.



The NZRS (.nz Registry Services) is updating a core component of the New Zealand Internet infrastructure to accommodate the increases in the number of networked devices connected to the Internet.

"Mobile phones are becoming common Internet devices and many other mobile and specialist devices from security systems to home automation will require connectivity in the future. It is preferable that each computer or device connected to the Internet has a unique addressing number," says NZRS general manager Nick Griffin.

The key to increasing capacity is the introduction of IPv6, the next generation Internet Protocol. IPv6 uses 128 bits for its computer addresses, a huge leap from the 32 bits used in the existing IPv4.

NZRS is announcing that the .nz name servers are now operating with IPv6 connectivity in what can be regarded as the first phase of the .nz IPv6 rollout. The name servers are ns8.dns.net.nz and ns9.dns.net.nz, and are located in Wellington and Albany respectively. Both are connected to the NZ IPv6 Internet Exchange and there is a .nz Whois server accessible at whois.ipv6.srs.net.nz.

The non-profit consortium Open Contributors Corporation for Advanced Internet Development (OCCAID) and US telco Sprint are providing IPv6 tunnels, while New Zealand-based is helping with connectons to the NZ IPv6 Internet Exchange.

.nz Registry Services is responsible for operation of the register of domain names and the Domain Name System (DNS) in the .nz domain name space.
