Your Challenge

The rapid development of IPv6 has caused an increasing number of IPv6 clients that need to access your IPv4 applications. The main issue is how to allow communication between IPv6 clients and IPv4 applications to meet your business needs.

Our Solution

  • GA instances support requests from IPv6 clients. You can use GA to convert IPv6 addresses to IPv4 addresses and forward the requests to the IPv4 applications that are deployed on the origin servers. This way, your applications can process requests from IPv6 clients without modifying the applications.
