DNSBOX on Malaysia’s IPv6 map
ApplianSys announced today that the Malaysian government has bought a DNSBOX solution to help with its move to IPv6. Techlab Security, ApplianSys’ partner and a leading Enterprise Systems Integrator and Solutions Provider in Malaysia, is facilitating this project.
The Malaysian government has targeted 2013 as the year to be fully IPv6 compliant. As a result, all departments are moving to IPv6 – starting with the JUPEM, the Department of Mapping and Surveying. To help deliver this project, Techlab has recommended using 26 DNSBOX units – a mix of DNSBOX400 master and DNSBOX200 slave devices.
Network Administrator at Techlab Security, Eng Hui Tan explains: “The department of Mapping and Surveying has 13 remote sites. We needed an appliance capable of controlling and managing the IP addresses for all of them. Most appliances offering IP management services were too expensive. ApplianSys’ DNSBOX provided full IPv6 support at an affordable price.”
Business Director at ApplianSys, Dave Gravell comments: “DNSBOX is equipped to handle support for both IPv4 and IPV6 protocols which makes it ideal for network environments undergoing IPv6 migration.
“As part of its switchover, Techlab Security will be able plan and manage the IP address space with the IPAM functionality provided by the DNSBOX400 master. In addition the DNSBOX200 slave is equipped to handle DNS and DHCP services. Combining the two will provide a solid, reliable and highly secure architecture for the future.”
Established in 1885, JUPEM is one of the oldest government agencies in Malaysia, responsible for national survey and mapping activities under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (NRE). Its work is seen as important in Malaysia’s progress towards becoming a developed nation, providing information which is vital for socio-economic development and in demarcating state and national boundaries to safeguard the nation’s sovereignty.
TechLab Security was incorporated in 2005 and specialises in Information Security and Desktop Management solutions. It is recognised as one of the leading Enterprise Systems Integrators and Solutions Providers in Malaysia.
