San Jose, CA – January 29, 20196connect is pleased to announce a partnership with HexaBuild, an IT professional services consultancy with industry-recognized IPv6 expertise, in a joint mission to drive forward industry change.

Both 6connect and HexaBuild recognize the need for enterprise networks to embrace IPv6, with its virtually unlimited address resources and capacity to provide for significantly increased scalability and operational efficiency. The legacy Internet protocol, IPv4, is officially exhausted, making IPv6 adoption inevitable worldwide.

“Our strategic partnership with HexaBuild will serve as a transformative business alliance that advances cloud services, security, and IoT with IPv6 and allows global enterprise clients to future-proof their networks,” said 6connect COO Pete Sclafani. “As a global leader in network resource management and provisioning systems, 6connect welcomes the opportunity to join HexaBuild in catalyzing the digital transformation revolution being built on IPv6,” he added.

HexaBuild provides a variety of transformation education services for their client base. 6connect’s ProVision platform for network provisioning allows global enterprises to centralize, automate and optimize key systems and processes – a requirement for adopting next-generation technologies and API-driven workflows.

Regarding the partnership, HexaBuild CEO, Ed Horley said, “We are excited to be partnering with 6connect to leverage their technology and talent. We particularly admire their long-standing IPv6 contributions and their ability to service and support customers in this area, some who are the largest service provider in the world. The 6connect executive leadership team and technical team are great to work with and we look forward to many partnered projects to help customers address their Cloud, IoT and Security needs with IPv6. Automation, workflow and orchestration are critical to the success of most of these projects and 6connect is well positioned to help our mutual customers in those areas.” – Ed Horley, HexaBuild Co-Founder & CEO
