Tieline's Bridge-IT Successfully Transmits Live Over IPv6 Networks

Tieline has announced that its Bridge-IT IP audio codecs performed a world first IPv6 transmission on World IPv6 Day by successfully transmitting live bidirectional stereo audio over multiple international hops using IPv6 infrastructure.
Darren Levy, Tieline's International Marketing Manager, said: "World IPv6 Day on June 8 was a significant global initiative designed to draw attention to the need for broadcasters and internet users generally to gear up for the new IPv6 internet.
"Tieline was part of this initiative and delivered a world first exclusive as two Bridge-IP codecs successfully transmitted stereo IP audio over IPv6 network infrastructure."
Levy said: "Tieline partnered with HostAway, one of Australia's many IPv6 enabled data centres, to connect to IPv6 infrastructure on the day. Two Tieline Bridge-IT audio codecs were programmed with IPv6 internet addresses and they connected to each other and successfully transmitted for several hours over the open internet. The quality and reliability of the connection was excellent and even the web-GUI for remotely programming the codecs was run over IPv6."
Levy said: "IPv6 will become increasingly important as IPv4 addresses become increasingly scarce. As a result, proving IPv6 compatibility using Bridge-IT is an important first step in ensuring IP codec compatibility across both IPv4 and IPv6 IP networks."
In the very near future, broadcasters will need to be adept at managing connections between both IPv4 and IPv6 network infrastructures, in order to maintain connectivity across wide area networks (WANs) like the internet.
The success of Tieline's IPv6 transmission affirms Tieline's leadership position in IP innovation and delivers confidence to broadcasters about the future of IP audio broadcasting. Broadcasters using Tieline Bridge-IT codecs can simply upgrade their firmware to connect over IPv6 as network hardware is rolled out.
