IPv6 Lands on Consumer Edge Routers [PODCAST]

by Sean Michael Kerner

First round of devices to get the official IPv6 Ready CE Router Logo debut as challenges remain for broader IPv6 adoption.

The exhaustion of the free pool of IPv4 address space has created a need to move to IPv6 to enable the continued expansion of the Internet and the billions of devices it connects. One key element of enabling IPv6 is making sure that it runs on consumer edge (CE) routers. That's where the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) aims to help with its IPv6 Ready CE Router Logo program.

In a podcast interview with Enterprise Networking Planet, Timothy Winters, a manager at UNH-IOL, discusses what his organization is all about and the challenges of IPv6 interoperability and certification.
