On World IPv6 Day — the day in early June when organizations focused attention on the so-called “new Internet” and its expanded number of IP addresses — Tieline sent live bidirectional stereo audio over multiple international hops using IPv6 infrastructure.

The company has been vocal about the importance ensuring IP codec compatibility across both IPv4 and IPv6 IP networks to maintain connectivity across wide-area networks.

International Marketing Manager Darren Levy said the company worked with HostAway, an Australian data center, to connect to IPv6 infrastructure that day. Two Bridge-IT audio codecs were programmed with IPv6 addresses and connected to each other and 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.
