Canadian IPv6 Leader Hexago to Speak at Red Herring Canada

    TORONTO, Sept. 5 /CNW/ - Hexago Inc.:

    When:    September 6, 2007; 5:00 p.m.

    Where:   Red Herring Canada 2007, Hyatt Regency Montreal, Room B
             1255 Jeanne-Mance, PO Box 130, Montreal, Quebec, Canada H5B

    What:    At Red Herring Canada, Hexago, the leading provider of IPv6
              deployment solutions, will present techniques organizations
              can use to support their transition to IPv6. Red Herring
              Canada is an exclusive two-day event highlighting Canada's
              rapid emergence as a global leader in technology's ever-
              changing ecosystem. Hexago will join other invited top
              innovators, decision-makers, and key players from technology
              companies across Canada in comprehensive, lively, and
              intelligent discussions, with a focus on the nation's
              evolution and advancement in such sectors as information
              technology, communications, life sciences, clean-tech
              industries, and much more. The engagement kicks off Hexago's
              new financing effort.

    Why:     The migration to IPv6 is the largest IT upgrade in history.
              The U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandated in
              2005 that all federal agencies enable their core networks
              for IPv6 by June 2008. The U.S. Department of Defense's
              (DoD) goal is to complete the transition to IPv6 for all
              inter and intra networking across the DoD by FY 2008. In
              addition to the U.S. government's initiatives, IPv4
              addresses are estimated to run out by 2010. The available
              IPv4 resource pool is reduced to the point that the American
              Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) advised the Internet
              community in June 2007 that migration to IPv6 is necessary.

    Who:     Bruce Sinclair, chief executive officer, will present IPv6
              product innovations from Hexago, including the company's
              flagship product Gateway6(TM), a sophisticated tool capable
              of providing connectivity between the next generation of the
              Internet, IPv6, and the current Internet, IPv4. Hexago has
              demonstrated a solid commitment to advancing IPv6 deployment
              through years of participation in IPv6 standards committees
              and research networks, through the company's popular free
              IPv6 access service, by sponsoring - the portal to
              the IPv6 world, and with the newly released IPv6 guide for
              U.S. government agencies.
