SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A - News) today demonstrated the industry's first IPsecv6 (Internet Protocol Security version 6) test solution, enabling equipment manufacturers and network operators to measure the scalability of IPv6 network security devices and virtual private networks (VPN) services. Agilent's N4180A NetworkTester can validate vital IPv6 specifications such as the ability to sustain high volumes of encrypted data transfer between thousands of real users, allowing verification of device performance and network designs.

The new IPsecv6 protocol permits encrypted and authenticated traffic to "tunnel" through next-generation IPv6 networks, making IPv6 VPNs possible and minimizing the risks of wiretapping and masquerade attacks.

Agilent repeated today the industry-first IPv6 firewall tests it demonstrated at the recent Moonv6 Phase 2 test event, where Agilent helped more than 20 major equipment vendors, network operators and branches of the U.S. military test interoperability and measure the security and performance of IPv6 network equipment. This demonstration showed network equipment manufacturers and service providers it is possible to reduce IPv6 implementation time and increase confidence that network security equipment is IPv6-ready.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
