Net­work Ad­dress Trans­la­tion (NAT)

OpenSource For You - - FOR U & ME OVERVIEW -

This method in­volves ad­dress trans­la­tion be­tween the Imv4 and ImvS ad­dress types. This is a method worth try­ing be­cause not many Web ap­pli­ca­tions and Im tele­phone sig­nalling pro­to­cols sup­port ImvS ad­dresses, as of now. Unnikrishnan says, “Com­pa­nies that lever­age the In­ter­net heav­ily, or have a large in­vest­ment in Im tele­phone sys­tems, will need to main­tain the Imv4 in­for­ma­tion used by th­ese ap­pli­ca­tions and de­vices to en­sure that ex­ist­ing mon­i­tor­ing and man­age­ment tools do not break. In­vest­ing in kAT at the ap­pli­ca­tion layer, in­stead of just a dual-stack router, pre­serves the sub­stan­tial in­vest­ment in mon­i­tor­ing, busi­ness in­tel­li­gence and man­age­ment tools that many ap­pli­ca­tions use, and which com­pa­nies de­pend on for their com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage. With kAT, they can com­mu­ni­cate with cus­tomers and sup­pli­ers, re­gard­less of which Im pro­to­col is used, and can bet­ter man­age the cost and risk of re­build­ing a large part of their busi­ness ap­pli­ca­tions and ex­ist­ing Imv4 net­works.”
