Pleasanton, California, August 17, 2004
AdventNet today announced a new release for its flagship product, the Web NMS 4.7 that includes Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) support. The IPv6 is the next-generation protocol designed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) will gradually replace the current version of the Internet, IPv4. The IPv6 fixes a number of problems in the IPv4, such as limited number of available addresses, and also adds improvements in areas such as routing and network auto configuration.
The IPv6 support in the Web NMS comprises of a client/server communication between the v4/v6 devices and v6 node, discovery of nodes via IPv6 layer and modeling of v6 nodes. Additionally, it includes reception of traps from v6 devices, status polling and data collection. These IPv6 features enable Web NMS deployments to seamlessly occur in either v4 or v6 environments. Other Web NMS 4.7 features include, Web client support for administration functions, database supports for MySQL 4.0.17, Solid BoostEngine 4.10.0124 and FireBird. Other improvements consist of performance enhancements that discover 255 nodes in less than two minutes; DHCP client management supported for non-SNMP clients and an enhanced security framework with several other GUI additions.
"IPv6 with its expanded capabilities like addressing, auto configuration, security architecture and quality of service is seeing plenty of traction in the market and we are pleased to meet our customer and industry needs by supporting this important protocol," said, Shailesh Kumar, Vice President of Engineering at AdventNet.
