Service providers are building out networks to extend coverage to underserved communities and provide faster, more secure, and innovative services. One critical area that can be overlooked in the long list of network requirements is the need to provide IPv4-IPv6 connectivity.

IPv6 is often not a viable near-term option as adoption is still uneven with many websites, subscriber devices, and servers currently supporting IPv4 only.
