Public preview: IPv6 Support for ExpressRoute Private Peering

Published date: March 24, 2021

IPv6 support for ExpressRoute Private Peering is now available for public preview with ExpressRoute circuits globally and Azure environments in regions with Availability zones. IPv6 support will unlock hybrid connectivity for you as you look to expand into mobile and IoT markets with Azure, or to address IPv4 exhaustion in your on-premise networks.

Here are the new capabilities available with this support:

  • Establish BGP sessions between the customer and Microsoft edge over ExpressRoute using IPv4 subnets, IPv6 subnets, or both
  • Connect to dual-stack deployments in Azure using a new or existing ExpressRoute gateway
  • Use FastPath with an ExpressRoute connection to route IPv6 traffic
