InfoWeapons’ Research and Development Center in the Philippines has been appointed as an IPv6 Ready Logo Test & Conformance Centre by the prestigious IPv6 Forum and its IPv6 Ready Logo Committee. The appointment, which was announced on March 30, 2010, makes InfoWeapons one of only six testing center in the world. Other test centers are based in Japan, USA, China, Taiwan and France.

This appointment authorizes InfoWeapons to test a product that supports IPv6 and certify that it is “IPv6 Ready”. This certification indicates that the product has passed specific conformance and interoperability standards set by the IPv6 Forum’s IPv6 Ready Logo Program. There are two levels of IPv6 Ready certification: Phase 1 (Silver logo) tests compliance with the “MUST” (mandatory) aspects of the relevant Internet Engineering Task Force RFCs (Internet standards).

Phase 2 (Gold logo) also tests compliance with the “SHOULD” (strongly recommended, but not mandatory) aspects of the relevant IETF RFCs. Phase 1 compliance is adequate for casual deployments (home office, small companies), Phase 2 compliance is intended for mission critical deployments (large enterprise, government agencies, financial institutions, telcos).
