Patton fournit des services IPv6 en périphérie de réseau

En mettant en œuvre le protocole IPv6 amélioré dans le CPE VoIP SmartNode, Patton prend en charge les architectures de réseau simplifiées et réduit les coûts d’exploitation et de maintenance des fournisseurs de services et des entreprises.

VoIP SmartNode … Au-delà de la simple parole !

GAITHERSBURG, Maryland, 21 nov. 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Patton Electronics, qui exerce ses activités en tant que fabricant de type bricks-and-mortar depuis 1984, a annoncé aujourd’hui avoir amélioré la technologie IPv6 dans son CPE SmartNode.

L’expansion mondiale d’Internet, la prolifération de terminaux IP, et un Internet des objets (IdO) en plein essor signifient que nous allons bientôt manquer d’adresses IPv4.

La norme IPv6 multiplie le nombre d’adresses IP disponibles par un octillion, ou au moins par 17 milliards.

Tout le monde le sait depuis longtemps et le battage médiatique dure depuis des années.

Les fournisseurs de services ont élaboré des plans et certains ont partiellement implémenté IPv6 dans leurs réseaux. Des opérateurs tels que Telefonica et T-MOBILE, mais aussi des entreprises telles que Microsoft, ont entrepris cette transformation. De nombreuses grandes entreprises ont également prévu de l’utiliser, mais l’adoption d’IPv6 y est inégale. La plupart des PME ont à peine envisagé une transition éventuelle.

« Une chose est sûre, nous ne vivons pas dans un monde 100 % IPv6 », a déclaré Burton A. Patton (Burt), vice-président exécutif de Patton. « Néanmoins, le passage à IPv6 est inéluctable. Et il y a de bonnes raisons de le faire le plus tôt possible. »

Les réseaux IPv6 sont plus simples (et moins chers) à exploiter et à entretenir.

Avec IPv4, la maintenance des tables de traduction d’adresses réseau (NAT) est une tâche complexe, fastidieuse et coûteuse. C’est probablement la raison pour laquelle whatech.com prédit que le marché IPv6 connaîtra une croissance de + 31 % (CAGR) d’ici 2023 et au-delà.

Depuis 2011, les plateformes matérielles et le système d’exploitation SmartNode de Patton sont prêts pour IPv6. Patton a testé et homologué le CPE SmartNode auprès de ses clients opérateurs historiques pour la fourniture de services de jonction SIP IPv6.

Aujourd’hui, Patton annonce non seulement la prise en charge d’IPv6, mais offre également des services améliorés d’orchestration en périphérie avec le cloud Patton.

Passer d’un réseau IPv4 à un réseau tout IPv6 présente des défis. Nous allons vivre dans un monde mixte IPv4 / IPv6 pendant quelques années.

La prise en charge d’IPv6 et IPv4 en périphérie de réseau (entre les réseaux d’entreprise et de fournisseur de services), tout en optimisant les transitions de service des deux côtés de la ligne de démarcation, peut s’avérer facile ou difficile, selon les cas. Patton estime que sa solution est la solution de facilité.

Dans le même ordre d’idées, Patton a récemment annoncé son nouveau service Patton Cloud Edge-Orchestration, qui accélère le déploiement et réduit les coûts des fournisseurs de services VoIP et ALL-IP.

Patton oferece serviços de IPv6 na extremidade da rede

Implementando IPv6 aprimorada em SmartNode VoIP CPE, a Patton dá suporte a arquiteturas de rede simplificadas e reduz os custos de operação e manutenção para provedores de serviços e empresas.

SmartNode VoIP… Mais do que simplesmente conversar!

GAITHERSBURG, Maryland, Nov. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A Patton Electronics – fazendo negócios como fabricante tradicional desde 1984 – aprimorou o IPv6 em seu SmartNode CPE, anunciou hoje a empresa.
A expansão global da Internet, a proliferação de dispositivos terminais de IP e a crescente Internet das Coisas (IoT) significam que os endereços IPv4 irão acabar em breve.

O padrão IPv6 amplia os endereços IP disponíveis na casa do octilhão, ou pelo menos 17 bilhões.

Todos sabem disso há muito tempo e foi propagandeado durante anos.

Os provedores de serviço fizeram planos e alguns implementaram IPv6 parcialmente em suas redes. Operadoras como Telefonica e T-MOBILE – e empresas como a Microsoft – iniciaram a mudança. Muitas grandes empresas também planejaram fazer isso, mas a adoção do IPv6 foi irregular. A maioria das PMEs mal tinham planejado uma transição.

“Uma coisa é certa: não vivemos em um mundo totalmente IPv6”, disse Burton A. Patton (Burt), Vice-Presidente Executivo da Patton. “Ainda assim, a mudança para IPv6 é inevitável. E há bons motivos para fazer isso o mais rápido possível”.

As redes IPv6 são mais simples – e MAIS BARATAS – de operar e manter.

>>Blog: Ativando o IPv6: Por que fazer isso?

Com o IPv4, a manutenção das tabelas de tradução de endereço de rede (NAT) é complexas, demorada e cara. Essa é, provavelmente, a razão pela qual a whatech.com prevê que o mercado de IPv6 cresça a uma taxa (CAGR) de mais de 31% até 2023 e posteriormente.

Desde 2011, as plataformas e o sistema operacional de hardware SmartNode da Patton estão prontas para o IPv6. A Patton testou e aprovou o SmartNode CPE com operadoras clientes de longa data para oferta do serviço de troncamento SIP IPv6.

Agora, a Patton anuncia não só suporte a IPv6 como oferece serviços de orquestração de ponta com o Patton Cloud.

Mudar de uma rede IPv4 para uma totalmente IPv6 apresenta desafios. Nós viveremos em um mundo misto de IPv4/IPv6 durante alguns anos.

Oferecer suporte a IPv6 e IPv4 na extremidade da rede (entre redes de empresas e provedores de serviço) ao mesmo tempo que capacita as transições de serviço em ambos os lados da demarcação pode ser feito de modo fácil ou difícil. A Patton diz que sua solução é o modo fácil.

Nas notícias relacionadas, a Patton anunciou recentemente seu novo Serviço de orquestração de ponta Patton Cloud, que acelera a implementação e reduz os custos para provedores de serviços VoIP e totalmente baseados em IP.

US Calls for Credible Elections in DR Congo

The United States is calling for peaceful and credible elections in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where campaigns for next month’s polls begin Friday.

In a statement Wednesday, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert says the December 23 elections give the DRC “a historic opportunity” to conduct a peaceful and democratic transfer of power.

She suggested a credible vote will also help Congo alleviate its humanitarian crisis, attract foreign investment, and stabilize central Africa.

The elections were originally due to take place in 2016, but were delayed as President Joseph Kabila refused to leave office at the end of his mandate.

Kabila, who has ruled the DRC since 2001, is now stepping aside and has endorsed a former interior minister, Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary, to be his successor.

Congolese authorities have blocked several opposition leaders from running for president, most prominently former vice president Jean-Pierre Bemba.

Opposition parties agreed to unite behind a single candidate for the election, businessman Martin Fayulu. But two opposition leaders, Felix Tshisekedi and Vital Kamerhe, have since pulled out of the agreement.

SOUTH AFRICA ADDRESSING POLICY, LAWS TO ATTRACT INVESTMENT – PRES RAMAPHOSA

CAPE TOWN– President Cyril Ramaphosa says South Africa is addressing policy and regulatory impediments as part of efforts to attract investment into the country.

He said this during a media briefing when he hosted German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier at Tuynhuys in Cape Town on Tuesday.

How are we increasing that confidence? We have embarked on a process of creating more certainty in our economy in terms of our laws, our policies, or regulations and also how we do things in terms of opening up the country for more investment.

So we are creating a much more investment inclusive country, Ramaphosa said.

He said as South Africa transitions through this phase of renewal, investors can rest assured that the country is run under the ambit of the law, in adherence to the Constitution and that government is run in a transparent manner.

He cited how the land reform process was being handled as an example of how transparent State institutions deal with policy matters.

The land reform process is being conducted in the most judicial (sic) and proper manner, by going through our structures. Parliament is one of those structures and it is going through that; it is being debated by the representatives of the people of South Africa, he said.

Ramaphosa said challenges like corruption were being tackled through forums such as the State Capture Commission and that its efforts to tackle corruption have made the country more attractive to investors.

We are focusing on the issue of State Capture because state capture is about how we deal with the issue of corruption and this gives us an opportunity as South Africa to see how the world looks at us, he said.

Ramaphosa said the State Capture Commission is an opportunity that investors are looking at to see the extent that we are able to correct our ways, to get rid of tendencies and practices that were completely different from a normal type of clean government that they would have expected.

So this commission is almost a cleansing process of all the bad things that have happened in our country and we wish the commission very well in its endeavours as it cleanses South Africa as it brings to the fore the truth of what happened in the past, he said.

Steinmeier said the German government was satisfied with the manner in which South Africa was tackling corruption and that his government has been monitoring the events from the State Capture Commission closely.

He also commended South Africa for its efforts to ensure that its judiciary remains independent.

During their bilateral meeting, Steinmeier told Ramaphosa that Germany had experienced entrepreneurs, who had accompanied him on his State visit and that they were exploring opportunities for further investment.

The last official visit to South Africa by a German President was undertaken 20 years ago by then Federal President Roman Herzog.

This week’s State visit follows a bilateral meeting between Ramaphosa and German Chancellor Dr Angela Merkel on the margins of the G20 Africa Summit in Berlin towards the end of October 2018.

The meeting re-energised relations between South Africa and Germany and provided the opportunity for President Ramaphosa to highlight the strategic importance of the relationship between the two countries.

Ramaphosa said the two countries have agreed to continue on efforts to further expand trade and investment between South Africa and Germany.

Germany is South Africa’s third-largest global trading partner and one of the largest foreign investors, with more than 600 companies operating in South Africa, sustaining approximately 100 000 jobs.

This provides a firm foundation to grow our economic relationship in line with our effort to significantly increase investment in the country and, as part of the Jobs Summit agreements, to develop our export capacity, he said.

Ramaphosa used the State visit to thank the German government for the technical and financial support it has provided to South Africa in areas like health, education, skills development and renewable energy.

SOUTH AFRICA, RUSSIA HOLD TRADE COOPERATION TALKS

PRETORIA– International Relations and Cooperation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu will Wednesday co-chair the 15th session of the annual South Africa-Russia Intergovernmental Committee on Trade and Economic Co-operation (ITEC) during a working visit to the European country.

Sisulu will chair the meeting with the Russian Minister of Natural Resources and Environment, Dmitry Kobylkin.

The one-day 15th ITEC meeting is a result of a bilateral agreement that was signed in 1999 and revived in 2002 with the objective of broadening and deepening relations between the two countries, the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) said in a statement.

Wednesday’s meeting will focus on investment, trade, banking cooperation, mineral resources, agriculture, justice, forestry and fisheries, water resources, science, technology and space, as well as higher education.

The main focus of the South African delegation is to build partnership and identify investment opportunities to grow the country’s economy and create jobs.

We are putting all our efforts in supporting President Ramaphosa’s investment drive to reach a target of $100 billion as soon as possible. Russia and South Africa have deep diplomatic and historic ties. We believe there is more that can be done in trade; we can export a number of our agricultural products. We can also build partnerships on water and agricultural technology, and education and skills development, Sisulu said.

During the recent 10th BRICS Summit in Johannesburg, the two countries signed two agreements/memoranda on co-operation in the fields of agriculture and water resources.

During the visit, Sisulu is expected to hold a bilateral meeting with her Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov.

Minister Sisulu will also lay wreaths at the Cenotaphs of the late veterans and freedom fighters, Mr Moses Kotane and Mr JB Marks. The two heroes were buried in Moscow and have since been repatriated and reburied in South Africa, DIRCO said.

Before returning to South Africa, Sisulu will also deliver a lecture on South Africa’s foreign policy at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations.

She is accompanied by the Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Bulelani Magwanishe and senior officials from the Departments of Trade and Industry, Mineral Resources, Science and Technology, Water and Sanitation, Communications, Transport, Justice, and Mineral Resources.
