CG-NAT: Fortinet &
ACCELERATING DEMAND STRAINS EXISTING IPV4 SUPPLY
Recent years have seen a tremendous and accelerating increase in demand for data networking capacity from carriers and enterprises. The multiplication of mobile and connected devices, the proliferation of streaming video-based applications, and cloud-based services will only augment the challenge of delivering capacity and ensuring quality as data moves from web to mobile to machines. To compound the issue, the surge in IoT and the recent global depletion of public IPv4 addresses strains existing IPv4 infrastructures and increases demand for CG-NAT IPv4 services.
