Share this

Anaheim, Calif., June 6, 2012 - Zyxel Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet connectivity and routing products, today announced that its VMG1312 broadband gateway passed IPv6 interoperability tests conducted by the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL). This VDSL2 gateway now satisfies the requirements for participation in the World IPv6 Launch.

Zyxel’s IPv6-enabled CPE implements IPv6 Ready Deployment (IPv6 RD), IPv6/IPv4 Dual Stack and IPv6/IPv4 Dual Stack Lite. These three transition paths allow service providers to either run IPv6 only or IPv4 and IPv6 simultaneously, with each facilitating a gradual rollout of IPv6 service within the network. In 2004, Zyxel began the process to obtain its first IPv6 Ready Logo certificate and has continued to receive this certification across a wide range of product lines while adding support for additional IPv6 features.
“Zyxel is proud of achieving this milestone in our ongoing effort for interoperability. We appreciate UNH-IOL’s support and expert guidance through this process,” said Brian Feng, senior vice president at ZyXEL. “We have provisioned IPv6 support for several ADSL2+, VDSL2 and bonded VDSL2 gateways to simplify and accelerate carrier deployment of these products.”

UNH-IOL is an independent provider of broad-based testing and standards conformance services for the networking industry. They have been conducting IPv6 interoperability tests for home system integrators during the fourth IPv6 CE (Home Router) Test Event, April 16 – 20, 2012. The UNH-IOL offers accredited testing for the IPv6 Ready Logo Program and has been highly involved in the IPv6 Forum’s IPv6 Ready Logo Program as the North American regional officer and a technical contributor.
