The 6connect platform simplifies short-term IPv4 management challenges and supports long-term IPv6 operational goals. 6connect automates IPv4 and IPv6 IPAM, critical to maintaining the health of complex and ever changing networks and fulfilling strict Service Level Agreements (SLAs). By replacing IPplan with 6connect's free IP Address Software across their network, Vector Data Systems' eliminated the labor-intensive, error-prone manual tasks involved in reassigning Internet Protocol address space and managing BIND DNS. Vector Data Systems also rapidly connected their network to the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) with the 6connect API to American Registry for Internet Numbers' (ARIN) RESTful Web Services. 6connect is the first company to successfully integrate with both ARIN and RIPE. Vector Data Systems selected 6connect for its reliability, ease of deployment, and its cost effectiveness. 6connect natively supports both IPv4 and IPv6 networks while making the implementation and management of BIND for DNS far easier. Furthermore, 6connect automates SWIP (Shared WHOIS Project) processes to ensure the effective, efficient management and maintenance of records on IP address space, reduces errors, increase security and simplifies operations.
