IPv6 implementation

The meter uses dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 routing technology to manage network communications and allow network hosts to communicate with the meter using either IPv4 or IPv6.

To support the new IPv6 address format, additional setup registers have been added to the meter’s Ethernet communications ION module: IPv6 Global Address and IPv6 Gateway:

  • IPv6 Global Address is the meter’s unique IPv6 device address identifier and is used by hosts to communicate with the meter.

  • IPv6 Gateway is the address the meter uses to route communications to a different network or subnet.
