Ready Logo Program
The IPv6 Forum, a world-wide consortium, with a key focus to provide technical guidance for the deployment of IPv6, launched a single world-wide IPv6 Ready Logo Program (conformance and interoperability testing). The IPv6 Ready Logo Program is a conformance and interoperability testing program intended to increase user confidence by demonstrating that IPv6 is available now and ready to be used.
The IPv6 Forum has created the IPv6 Ready Logo Committee (v6LC), to manage the IPv6 Ready Logo Program. It comprises representatives from equipment vendors, service providers, academic institutions, IPv6 organizations, members from IPv6 Ready Logo approved labs.
IPv6 Ready Logo Phase Series – Phase-1 (Concluded) and Phase-2.
The IPv6 Ready Logo series of tests were progressively enriched, from a minimum coverage with Phase-1 to a more complete coverage with the Phase-2.
- Phase 1 (Silver) Logo (Concluded): This Phase-1 logo has been concluded November 2011. This Logo indicated that the product includes IPv6 mandatory core protocols and can interoperate with other IPv6 implementations.
- Phase 2 (Gold) Logo: The IPv6 Ready Core Logo expands the “core IPv6 protocols” test coverage to approximately 450 tests and adds new extended test categories. The Logo background color is Gold. The Phase 2 Logo has been available since February 16, 2005. The Gold Logo verifies optimum compliance because of the complete series of tests including the “MUST” and the recommended “SHOULD” for the IETF specifications testing.
