Moxa takes the lead in offering a full line of IPv6-ready industrial Ethernet switch solutions

Taipei, Taiwan, February 13, 2009—Moxa announced today that its EDS series and IKS series Layer 2 industrial managed Ethernet switches now conform to IPv6, Internet protocol version 6. IPv6 is the next-generation Internet protocol that was created in response to the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses, and provides 128-bit addresses to support essentially unlimited expansion of network traffic. In response to this, Moxa is the first and the only industrial Ethernet switch provider to offer the most IPv6-ready solutions for industrial automation and control applications. Moxa's EDS series of DIN-Rail industrial managed Ethernet switches and IKS series of rackmount managed Ethernet switches have officially passed the IPv6 ready logo program and can be trusted for use on existing IPv4, IPv6, or mixed IPv4 and IPv6 industrial network environments. By complying fully with the IPv6 mandatory core protocols, Moxa's industrial managed Ethernet switches offer real-time operation and control of IPv6 activity, including automatic IP address configuration and better QoS functionality.


To make it easier to integrate and upgrade existing network infrastructures in the future, Moxa's industrial managed Ethernet switches follow a dual stack transition structure that is ideal for both IPv4 and IPv6 network applications. Moxa's switches can automatically allocate an IPv6 IP address and offer improved traffic prioritization of QoS through IPv6's built-in packet tags to promise maximum security and efficient performance of networks.
