  • Testing home routers for World IPv6 launch

    The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) hosted its fourth IPv6 Customer Edge (CE) Router Interoperability Test Event the week of April 16 at its facility in Durham, N.H., bringing together both users and suppliers of home router equipment. The goal was to gain perspective on the current status of IPv6 interoperability against the Internet Engineering Task Force's (IETF) Basic Requirements for IPv6 Customer Edge Routers and support the Internet Society's (ISOC) World IPv6 Launch. Eight vendors -- Broadcom, CHT-TL IPv6 Testing Lab, D-Link, NDM Systems, Motorola Mobility LLC, Netgear, Time Warner and ZyXEL -- tested ten router implementations using publicly routable IPv6 addresses.
