SK Broadband in South Korea has begun successfully deploying IPv6 service to customers across its HFC network.
SK Broadband has been an Arris C4 CMTS customer since 2005, and it recently implemented the new IPv6 service by upgrading its existing chassis to Software Release 8.0.
Dae Chul Noh, SK Broadband’s network planning team leader, said, “We are very pleased with the cost-efficient and operationally simple solution that the Arris C4 CMTS platform brings us in being able to ensure that none of our customers see any degradation or termination of service.”
Arris said it considers SK’s upgrade to be a milestone in its IPv6 feature development efforts.
"Over the past year, we've worked very closely with our customers to plan IPv6 feature support for both our CMTS and CPE platforms," said Todd Kessler, Arris’ vice president of CMTS product management.
