IP-Converge Enhances Services by Implementing IPv6

Internet data center, telecommunications and cloud services provider IP Converge Data Services, Inc. recently announced that its network infrastructure now supports the use of IPv6 (Internet protocol version 6) for customers’ Internet connectivity requirements.
