IPv6 support on ME 3400 Series?

I'm looking into deploying a couple ME-3400G-12CS-A metro ethernet switches in our network. All the features listed on data sheet look great, however IPv6 support appears to be missing.

Assuming the ME 3400 series does not support IPv6, will IPv6 support be available in the future through a mean of software upgrade for ME 3400's product roadmap? Or will enablement of IPv6 require complete replacement of ME3400 series products with something else (i.e. for example, Cat3550's hardware TCAM could not support IPv6, thus cat3560 is the right platform to upgrade into for v6 support).

Thanks in advance for any suggestion that you can provide.

ME 3400 does not support IPv6 currently in software. But there is no such limitation in ME 3400 hardware. So you can expect that IPv6 may be supported in near future.
