IPv6 Forum - a global industry alliance whose main activity is to provide implementation and development of technology IPv6. Certification Program IPv6 Ready Logo, an initiative of IPv6 Forum, provides testing equipment for interoperability and compliance protocols. This compared with Phase-1, tested for compliance with IPv6 Ready Logo Phase-2 provides for the passage of a much larger number of tests.
During the certification IPv6 ready logo Phase-2 Switches DGS-3400, DES-3200, DES-3528/52, DGS-3610 and DES-7200 successfully passed the tests for compliance with all requirements of the IPv6 Forum. It should be noted that this is not the first device in the product line D-Link, the last certified IPv6 ready logo Phase 2. Earlier this certification have received Managed Switch D-Link DGS-3200 series and DGS-3600. Further, D-Link will continue to work towards increasing the number of products with IPv6 support, and their subsequent certification in accordance with the program IPv6 ready logo Phase-2.
According to recent estimates of experts, a resource of free IPv4-addresses on the Internet will be completely exhausted by 2011. To solve this problem was created protocol IPv6, the switch from 32-bit addressing system to a 128-bit. In addition, the IPv6 protocol provides more security, as well as advanced functional network management.
