With the high cost of growing subscribers and urgent network build-hear how A10 & Xantaro UK can help address IPv4 Challenge for UK AltNets:

The IPv4 Challenge for UK AltNets


In the UK, at the end of 2020 research indicated 600,000 people in towns and more rural locations remain restricted to 10Mbps or less. Higher speed fibre broadband services are needed to enable students to study at home, hospitals to offer telemedicine services, and farmers to leverage IoT technology to monitor crops, and many other use cases.

Alternative network operators (AltNets), spurred by pandemic urgency and government funding, are busy building out full-fibre networks to extend coverage to unserved or underserved communities and provide faster, more secure and innovative services. The need is urgent and budgets are tight – capital investments must focus on high priority areas that can meet required benchmarks and unnecessary costs must be eliminated.

One critical area that can be overlooked in the long list of network requirements is the need to provide IPv4-IPv6 connectivity. A typical operator building out to just 10,000 new subscribers could easily spend £231,000 just for the IPv4 addresses – that’s £231K that could be spend on building coverage to one more hospital, passing more homes and new services to remote areas. The price of scarce IPv4 addresses keeps rising and can become a surprising and unexpected cost for many operators. IPv6 is often not a viable near-term option as adoption is still uneven with many web sites, subscriber devices and servers currently supporting IPv4 only.


Why is this important?

UK AltNets & Next Generation Network Providers need a proven, cost effective way to provide this critical functionality while sustaining business growth, extend any existing IPv4 investment and creating a path to eventual IPv6 migration. CGNAT provides a cost effective option.
