Liberty freed for IPv6
ApplianSys announced today that Liberty Cablevision, the second largest cable television operator in Puerto Rico, has upgraded its DNSBOX solution to support the addition of a new data centre.
Liberty Cablevision was building a disaster recovery site and so wanted to expand the scope of the DNSBOX300/100 solution it already had in place. It expected that IPv6 deployment would soon become a requirement for its customer base and wanted to add IPAM to make it possible to manage many thousands of records efficiently and accurately. So, Liberty took the logical step of upgrading its existing DNSBOX300/100 solution to DNSBOX400/200.
DNSBOX Sales Manager, Magdalena Jovanovic explains, “If you are implementing IPv6, you simply can’t manage it without IPAM, which you get with DNSBOX400. In addition, the extra security features in the advanced DNSBOX200 model were particularly attractive to Liberty. In the past it has observed attempted malicious attacks on DNS caches and been alerted to the risks.”
