Gilat Satcom today announced that its POPs in the UK and Zambia have been optimised to receive and transmit traffic from IPv6 addresses – and it will be similarly upgrading its POP in Tanzania in the near future.

Gilat Satcom provides broadband over both satellite and fibers to more than 50 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Its customers include telcos, ISPs, governments, enterprise customers and international organizations.

Ofer Doron, VP Engineering of Gilat Satcom, said “The rapid growth in the number of devices, people and web services on the internet means that IPv6 must – and will - be the backbone of the world’s broadband network in the future. We chose to start with Zambia and London due to increase in demand of local ISPs for IPv6 connectivity. During 2015 we plan that all of our core devices will be IPv6 compatible."
