IP Infusion Tests IPv6 in Moonv6 Project with ZebOS Routing Software

10/22/2003 - IP Infusion, a leading provider of intelligent network software for enhanced IP services, announced that it is participating in the Moonv6 project, a collaborative effort spearheaded by the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) that is testing interoperability of IPv6 routing and applications over geographically dispersed IPv6 networks. Over twenty-five leading communications equipment, software and server vendors are participating in the Moonv6 project; this collaboration represents the most aggressive IPv6 interoperability and application demonstration event to date.

IP Infusion has provided four servers with IPv6 routing software to the Moonv6 project. These servers have been deployed at UNH-IOL, the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), the Marine Corps Network Operations and Security Command and the Air Force Communications Agency. IP Infusion’s participation at each of these locations is helping to demonstrate the interoperability of its IPv6 routing software with routing products from communications equipment providers. Together with software and server vendors, the Moonv6 project showcases the reliability and security of IPv6-enabled products.

”Moonv6 is unique among IPv6 test events, taking the concept of the interoperability event to the next level”, said Ben Schultz, Managing Engineer at UNH-IOL. “Beyond protocol testing, we are collaborating with participating service providers to build a network that demonstrates the resiliency and reliability of IPv6 with applications and failure scenarios.

IP Infusion has provided RIPng, OSPFv3, BGP-4+ routing protocols, ISATAP and 6to4 tunneling software to the Moonv6 project. IP Infusion has helped pioneer IPv6 routing technologies and its routing software is widely deployed in the 6bone, the world’s largest IPv6 testbed. In conjunction with Moonv6 facilitators and participants, IP Infusion would like to demonstrate the maturity and reliability of IPv6 solutions to drive the worldwide conversion from IPv4 to IPv6 networking.

“Before organizations will deploy IPv6, they must be assured that this next generation technology is mature, stable, and dependable. Network administrators must be convinced that the IPv6 products they roll out will interoperate with IPv6 products from other vendors and will not disrupt their existing IPv4 networks,” said Govind Desale, Vice President of Operations at IP Infusion. “We are pleased to participate in the Moonv6 project because this event will demonstrate IPv6 routing, security, mobility and other IPv6 networking applications in a real-world production environment.”
