Telstra (ASX: TLS) announced today that it has added Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) connectivity to its business ADSL solutions network. The widely used IPv4 addresses are in imminent danger of being used up, and Telstra’s new offerings will enable its small to medium business customers to opt in to the latest in IP addresses. The company previously debuted IPv6 connectivity in 2011 for its Internet Direct network, and in 2012 for its Next IP network.

According to Telstra’s Director of Transport and Routing Engineering David Robertson, his company’s advancement will enable its customers to transition from IPv4 to IPv6 at their own pace. “We have a long-term roadmap for deploying IPv6 capability into our networks, and are pleased that many of our business customers can use this new service to support the transition of their networks to IPv6,” said Robertson in a statement today.

Now that all sizes of businesses, government, and wholesale customers are connected to IPv6, Telstra plans to roll out its latest IP version for fixed consumers and wireless networks in the near future. According to the release, Telstra is one of the first Australasian businesses to invest in scalable IPv6 capability.
