IPv6 Plugtests

The first IPv6 PlugtestsTM was organised in Beijing China, from 9 to 12 April 2006, co-located with the Global IPv6 Summit, held from 13 to 14 April 2006.

IPv6 is the next generation Internet. It gives vastly increased address space and true end-to-end communication. It has improved security and mobility features and allows 'plug-and-play' connection to the network.

The complexity of implementing IPv6 technology and the relative openness of IETF standards means that wide-ranging and effective testing of IPv6 products is one of the key factors in ensuring the deployment, interoperability, security and reliability of the IPv6 infrastructure on which the success of e-Government, e-Business, e-Health, e-Learning and e-Procurement will eventually depend.

The key objective and benefits of the ETSI IPv6 PlugtestsTM event were:

  • Access in one place a wide range of tests provided by various test companies
  • Check the interoperability or your products with international and active market players
  • Run the tests of the IPv6 Ready Logo phase-1 and Phase-2
  • Improve and debug your IPv6 implementation by running the available Interoperability and Conformance tests and the

Number of Participating companies: 10

The event was supported by the European Commission.
