EXFO Tunes Testing for IPv6

EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering (EXFO) has incorporated optional IPv6 testing capabilities across its entire portfolio of transport and datacom testing modules. EXFO's portfolio of transport and datacom modules, including the Packet Blazer series, the Power Blazer series and the AXS-200/850 Ethernet Test Set, offer service providers Ethernet testing for IPv4 and IPv6 deployments, including BERT, RFC 2544 and advanced layer 3 and 4 multistream traffic generation and analysis.

"The wireless industry has been instrumental in driving the wide-spread adoption of advanced multimedia services; but in order to sustain this growth, government bodies and service providers worldwide must rapidly convert their network infrastructures to support the greater routing and address translation demands of IPv6 addressing schemes," said Etienne Gagnon, EXFO's Vice-President of Product Management and Marketing.
