LVL7 Preps for IPv6

RTP, N.C. -- LVL7 Systems, Inc., the leading provider of production-ready networking software, announced today that its FASTPATH® 4.4 software has earned the IPv6 Ready designation and logo from the IPv6 Forum, a worldwide industry association of Internet suppliers.

Reserved for products that pass a rigorous and objective test procedure conducted by the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), the IPv6 Ready designation validates system, software and device performance against specific parameters established by the IPv6 Forum.

FASTPATH software was one of the first products to complete a newly revised UNH-IOL test cycle that combined the previously-separate Phase 1 and Phase 2 test procedures into a single, comprehensive assessment. The new testing process, outlined in Revision 3.8.8 to the IPv6 Ready specifications, evaluates system interoperability, compliance with core protocols, and detailed performance measurements associated with multiple RFC industry standards.

"LVL7 has shown a positive commitment to IPv6 compliance and interoperability through involvement in the IPv6 Ready logo program," said Erica Williamsen, UNH-IOL’s senior manager of Software and Applications, and manager of the IPv6 Consortium. "LVL7 has completed a rigorous body of tests that fully qualify FASTPATH 4.4 to join the family of approved IPv6 Ready Phase-2 solutions."
