Nokia HQ in Espoo, Finland Nokia demonstrated the world's first dual stack IPv4/IPv6 CDMA handset in Bankok.
This prototype handset addresses the increasing demand for advanced Internet-connected mobile devices in an environment in which existing Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) addresses are rapidly being depleted, and will soon be replaced by nearly infinite Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) addresses. Nokia is currently offering prototype IPv6 CDMA handsets to operators for testing purposes, and will be ready for commercial delivery of dual stack IPv4/IPv6 handsets during 2004.
Besides the obvious increase in address space that it provides, IPv6 also provides additional security benefits to users. IPv6 includes packet encryption and source authentications for end-to-end security protection, and a "flow label" to support real-time traffic in a mobile environment. IPv6, by providing unique and globally routable IP addresses to users, enables a new generation of peer-to-peer applications and push-based services.
The introduction of dual stack IPv4/IPv6 devices is essential for the seamless transition of current IPv4 based networks and devices to the upcoming IPv6 environment. More Details in Nokia Press-Release.
