Colt debuts VoIP support for IPv6 via its SD WAN platform

Colt Technology Services has launched two new features underpinned by its SD WAN platform; VoIP optimisation and support for IPv6.

These new features address the shift in network demand currently being experienced by enterprises globally, as many are adjusting to the new normal of mass remote working and additional devices connecting to their already stretched networks.

This shift to remote working means that enterprises’ demand for VoIP-enabled networks solutions is higher than ever. Having an SD WAN enabled VoIP network allows businesses to optimise their network and voice infrastructures for a superior virtual meeting experience. Colt SD WAN identifies mission-critical VoIP traffic from VoIP applications in a customers’ network, prioritising this traffic for improved reliability and performance. When paired with Colt SIP Trunking, Colt offers customers VoIP optimisation with Mean Opinion Score (MoS) based dynamic traffic steering at no extra cost.

Colt is also one of the first network service providers offering an SD WAN solution with global support for IPv6. Each new device that joins an enterprise network requires a unique IP address, and IPv4 addresses are limited. Colt SD WAN with dual IPv4 and IPv6 stack support gives customers the flexibility to design their WANs with IPv4 today, while future-proofing their network and avoiding expensive costs when they later switch to IPv6.

Peter Coppens, Vice President Product Portfolio, Colt Technology Services, says: “As enterprises around the world adjust to this new way of working, they require networks and products that can adapt as quickly as they are having to. These new SD WAN capabilities will help businesses stay connected during this time, as well as help them future-proof their networks for the months and years ahead.

“At Colt, we have taken great pride in doing all that we can to keep our customers connected during this unprecedented time, and these offerings are a further extension of that drive to enable customers’ digital transformations, regardless of how quickly they have had to shift focus.”
