Re: IPv6 on SOHO routers?

Juniper Networks Does support IPv6 in J-Series Routers and SSG Firewalls:

SSG-5 and SSG-20 does support it after Screenos 6.1 ... for small office business.

Other vendor like Fortinet is supporting IPv6 in SOHO equipment too.



Slightly off-topic, but tangentially related that I'll dare to ask.

I'm attending an "Emerging Communications" course where the instructor
stated that there are SOHO routers that natively support IPv6, pointing to
Asia specifically.

Do Linksys, D-Link, Netgear, etc. have such software for the Asian markets?

Furthermore, he stated that networking equipment companies like Cisco will
be moving away from IPv4 in 5 years or so.  This is the first time I've
heard this posited -- I had a hard believing that, but he claims it with
some authority.  Anyone hear anything like this?  My own opinion is that
we'll see dual-stack for at least a decade or two to come.
