Tieline Bridge-IT Transmits via IPv6 Networks

June 16, 2011

Indianapolis - Jun 16, 2011 - Tieline conducted tests of its Bridge-IT IP audio codec via IPv6 by successfully transmitting live bidirectional stereo audio over multiple international hops using IPv6 infrastructure.

Tieline partnered with HostAway, one of Australia's many IPv6-enabled data centers, to connect to the IPv6 infrastructure on June 8, 2011. 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.

Tieline notes that broadcasters will need to be adept at managing connections between both IPv4 and IPv6 network infrastructures to maintain connectivity across wide area networks such as the Internet.
