Participation in Event Marks Successful Implementation of IPv6 in all Q9
TORONTO, June 2, 2011 /CNW/ - Q9 Networks is pleased to announce that
after two years of planning and a 12-month deployment project, it has
successfully implemented IPv6 throughout all of its data centres. As
part of the upgrade project, Q9 is also now in a position to support
customer networking requirements up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbps).
