Valid8 teams with The UNH InterOperability Lab to Expand IPv6 Testing over a 4G Network

Woburn, MA, and Durham, NH, (January 15, 2019) -- Valid8, a leading provider of performance, conformance and load testing for LTE/5G, 4G, 3G, IMS, VoIP and PSTN telecommunication networks and devices, today announced a collaboration with the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL), an independent provider of broad-based testing and standards conformance solutions for the networking industry, to test IPv6 requirements over a simulated mobile network (4G).

The new collaboration allows customers of the UNH-IOL to use the Valid8 4G Network Emulator, which enables the lab to run IPv6 testing over 4G, to perform their IPv6 testing. The addition of Valid8’s solution expands the types of devices customers can test at the UNH-IOL for the IPv6 testing programs.

“We are excited about this partnership,” said Ian Carpenter, CEO of Valid8. “The UNH-IOL testing lab is on the forefront of interoperability testing, and when combined with our IPv6 testing hardware and software adds flexibility and efficiency to the certification process, allowing UNH-IOL customers to test over Ethernet, WiFi and Mobile Networks.”

The UNH-IOL has been testing IPv6 for 20+ years and achieved ISO/IEC 17025 certification, offering accredited USGv6 testing in addition to accredited testing for the IPv6 Ready Logo Program. To meet the growing demands of IPv6 accreditation testing, the UNH-IOL also offers a custom protocol software, IOL INTACT®, which is available to companies for testing IPv6 in-house before submitting devices for final testing.

“Our testing programs and IOL INTACT Software are designed to help companies reduce the time to market, and in the case of IPv6, encourage adoption of the technology,” said Michayla Newcombe, Associate Director, UNH-IOL. “The addition of the Valid8 4G Network emulator offers our customers additional testing options to better represent real-world conditions.”
