Erion IPv6 Services

IPv6 Services from Erion

Erion is the world's leading independent IPv6 training and IPv6 consultancy company. At Erion we have been providing IPv6 services since the first IPv6 standards were published in 1998.

IPv6 (the Internet Protocol version 6) is the latest version of the Internet Protocol (IP) upon which the Internet is built. It is designed to replace IPv4 which was standardised in 1981.

IPv4 address space is too small for the world's growing needs. By the mid-1990s Network Address Translation (NAT) had to be used to conserve IPv4 addresses. Despite NAT, by 2011 the central pool of IPv4 addresses was exhausted.

Today all modern operating systems, network devices and most applications are IPv6 ready. The challenge that remains is to deploy IPv6.

Erion has a vast experience of providing IPv6 consultancy and IPv6 training to many of the world's leading organisations and companies around the world.

Erion has the experience and knowledge to help you with all your IPv6 requirements

Single Sign On

Single Sign On

Single Sign On refers to the ability to use the name credentials (user name and password) to log-on to a number of different systems, including various operating systems, applications and even building security systems.

Modern operating systems make it possible to integrate user account databases and authentication mechanisms in a wide variety of ways. Active Directory, in particular, makes single-sign-on more practical than it has been previously.

Erion can help you choose and implement appropriate single-sign-on technologies. We have a wide experience of mixing different solutions from a variety of vendors across Windows, Unix and Linux.

Sendmail Training and Consultancy


Sendmail remains the most widely used Message Transfer Agent (MTA) in the world. Sendmail is still the most configurable and adaptable MTA available.

Sendmail is also notoriously difficult to understand and configure. Many organisations that use Sendmail have configurations that have evolved over many years and that are now hard to maintain. We can help you understand, modify and upgrade these configurations.

Erion is one of the few organisations world-wide that continues to provide Sendmail training and Sendmail consultancy. Some of our consultants have been working with Sendmail since the early 1980s.

Sendmail Migration Consultancy

Sendmail Migration Consultancy

Some organisations desire to migrate from Sendmail to another MTA. Migrating from Sendmail can present some unique difficulties. In particular, one of the key aims of any migration is to smoothly transfer the functionality of the Sendmail configuration to the new MTA. Often it is difficult to fully determine the functionality of the Sendmail configuration.

We can help you decode the Sendmail configuration and ensure that you are able to migrate all of the functionality to the new MTA.

Erion can also help you determine if a migration is actually necessary. There are many myths regarding Sendmail and we can help you separate myth from fact.
