IPv6 standard Attracts US Interest

In one of IPv6's largest interoperability tests ever, a group of North American organizations has completed the second phase of Moonv6, an IPv6 backbone stretching from New Hampshire to California. Spearheaded by the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory, the North American IPv6 Task Force and the U.S. Department of Defense, this new network is available to any organization that wants to test IPv6 implementations on a live network.

Now is the time to take advantage of this IPv6 test bed. Improved international compatibility--and increased security through better end-to-end IP connections--could be the payoff for this moon shot.
