Ixia In on IPv6 Trial
CALABASAS, Calif. -- Ixia (Nasdaq:XXIA - News), a leading, global provider of IP network testing solutions, announced that its IxChariot application testing solution is deployed at several government locations creating a real-world test scenario by transmitting VoIP traffic and QoS mechanisms within the "Moonv6" IPv6 network.
"The goal of the DoD is to be compliant with IPv6 by FY 2008," said Capt. Dan Millane of the JITC. "The Moonv6 objective is to define the technology and construct a fundamental end-to-end, real-world distributed model to test the validity of IPv6 within a core network infrastructure."
The Moonv6 network is the world's largest multi-vendor IPv6 network, stretching from New Hampshire to California, and is a global collaboration between industry leaders, the North American IPv6 Task Force (NAv6TF), the UNH-IOL, Internet2, and U.S. governmental agencies. This latest round of Moonv6 tests focus on voice, wireless, firewalls and a host of advanced network and application-layer tests.
Ixia's IxChariot is the exclusive tool used to stage real world IPv6 application layer traffic throughout the interoperability and conformance test bed of this new round of tests for "Moonv6." Specifically, IxChariot is used to examine the reliability, functionality, and scalability of this nation-wide IPv6 Network.
