NAv6TF Technology Update Overview
ipv6 ready logo program
IPv6 Ready Logo Program
  • A “Unified” test suite for the IPv6 Base Specifications
  • UNH and TAHI are the primary authors of the base criteria document
  • IPv6 Ready Logo Phase II and IPsec Logo
  • Mobile IPv6 and Network Mobility (NEMO) Logos
  • See URL:
  • Discussion: Where could Open Group add more certification and requirements?
nav6tf matrix analysis
NAv6TF Matrix Analysis
  • Facilitate a matrix analysis tool of deployment methods, transition mechanism, aggregate product list, business drivers, network pilots, IPv6 Forum Logo criteria, and technology features from the NAv6TF to the market.
  • NAv6TF team in place and project has started.
  • Matrix will be located on NAv6TF web page for viewing.
  • Matrix will be able to be downloaded by anyone in the market.
nav6tf matrix example discussion
NAv6TF Matrix Example Discussion
  • 2-Dimensional View:
    • Columns represent deployment coordinates like technology features, standards, network pilots, applications, etc
    • Rows represent deployment functions like user types (e.g. enterprise or consumer), business drivers, vendors, application and Internet service providers, etc.
    • Objective is to match rows across columns to provide deployment capability for that row function.
  • 3-Dimensional View
    • Using rows as outlier functions and nested function with deployment coordinates a 3-Dimensional view from the matrix is possible.
    • Example consumer (business driver) function produces components required for consumer user and integrates with that business driver result from that function.
    • Example vendortype (application) function produces the ability of that vendor to support the components required that application driver for deployment.
ipv6 forum www ipv6forum org
  • International non-profit deployment forum working world wide to foster the deployment of IPv6.
  • Mission:
    • To promote IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6: the new Internet Protocol) by dramatically improving the market and user awarenessof IPv6, creating a quality and secure Next Generation Internet and allowing world-wide equitable access to knowledge and technology, embracing a moral responsibility to the world.
  • Objectives and Accomplishments:
    • Established an open, international FORUM of IPv6 technical expertise
    • Shared IPv6 knowledge and experience among members
    • Promoted new IPv6-based applications and global solutions
    • Promoted interoperable implementations of IPv6 standards
    • Co-operated to achieve end-to-end quality of service and security
    • Resolved issues that created barriers to IPv6 deployment
    • Supported the development of Task Forces within Regions

  • Promote the deployment of IPv6 across North America, as a non-profit volunteer body subchapter of the IPv6 Forum.
  • Technology and Deployment Partnership with Internet2 and University of New Hampshire IPv6 Interoperability Lab.
  • Provide business, promotional, educational, and technical center of expertise for IPv6 in North America to any entity building, deploying, or developing IPv6 for deployment.
  • Provide technology and transition input to support North American deployment efforts as we have done for Department of Defense, Department of Commerce, Department of Homeland Security, Independent Software Vendors, and Commercial Service Providers.
  • Continue to lead the Moonv6 IPv6 Network Pilot and expand that backbone peering network as a worldwide IPv6 backbone Network Pilot and develop MOUs for Moonv6 collaboration.
  • Develop technology partner relationships with other consortia’s, industry, government, and standards bodies working on IPv6.
  • Participate in North American industry trade show events, seminars, and technology briefings as IPv6 center of expertise.
  • Develop IPv6 deployment technology usage guides as required.

Moonv6 Network
  • The Moonv6 project is a collaborative effort between the North American IPv6 Task Force (NAv6TF), the University of New Hampshire - Interoperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), Internet2, vendors, service providers, and regional IPv6 Forum Task Force network pilots worldwide.  Taking place across multiple locations, the Moonv6 project represents the most aggressive collaborative IPv6 interoperability and application demonstration event to date. The U.S. Government's Department of Defense Joint Interoperability Testing Command (JITC) also plays a significant role in many of the Nav6TF IPv6 demonstrations ensuring DoD interoperability and migration objectives are identified and demonstrated.
  • The actual motivation of Moonv6 was defined at an NAv6TF, U.S. Cyberspace Security Office, and other participants (November 2002), during discussions to determine how serious should the U.S. take IPv6 as a mission. The question posed to the participants was should we treat IPv6 as we did going to the Moon in 1969? Later when it was decided to investigate how to deploy a U.S. wide IPv6 Network Pilot at a meeting at the University of New Hampshire in March of 2003, including NAv6TF, University of New Hampshire, and Department of Defense principals, the term Moonv6 was selected to name this Network Pilot. Moonv6 is now an inclusive project with many participants, and world wide.
what is the moonv6 network
What is the Moonv6 Network?
  • What is the Moonv6 Peering Network? The Moonv6 network is a set of native IPv6 connections between sites on the global Internet that will forward packets to other Moonv6 peering sites. Participants can have a native IPv6 connection to the Internet, and Moonv6 will permit IPv6-in-IPv4 tunnel hops for a 90 day period to test on the Moonv6 network, provided the requestor, not Moonv6 administration, defines and administers those tunnels.
  • What is a Moonv6 Peering Site? A Moonv6 site is one that forwards packets within the Moonv6 Peering Network and also participates as a Moonv6 site for collaborative testing of IPv6 implementations for interoperability and verification of functions within the IPv6 protocol and architecture. To become a Moonv6 peering network, a network must IPv6 peer with anexisting Moonv6 peering network. To become a Moonv6 site, one must connect to an existing Moonv6 peering network.
  • In addition to the peering network itself, the Moonv6 project also encompasses deployment-style device testing at several network sites. Participants execute rigorous, protocol-specific test plans created under the guidance of telecommunication carriers, service providers and other real network operators. In addition to greatly extending the participants' own R&D efforts, this testing helps to create confidence in the technology and shorten its adoption cycle.
