na... I've rolled out box after box in the last 6 months with no v6 in it.
Cisco ATAs... SPA phones - both new models in the last year, no v6
support in those.
Ubiquiti 5Gz radios - no v6 there.
...and I know I'm not the only offender.
I keep banging away at my equipment providers and looking for other gear
that is v6, but it's just not there.
It's like no one believes me that I give a v6 toss at all... I'm
getting the message that I need to sharpen up my CGN understanding
because that's the direction we're heading.
My mobile provider has just started giving me a NAT connection... It was
a public /32, but it's gone NAT I noticed. My mobile will do v6... but
how do I land a tunnel on that?
Now you might suggest I just go find some different providers so I can
just put the acid on... ya... with my $1,000 spend a month from a
mainly service focused business...
...but hey, if you can find me ATA's that will do what the SPA100 series
will, at the same price point (which is still higher than what my
customers are happy with) them I'm all ears... I've been trying to kill
off PSTN as hard as we're trying to kill off v4.
