Extreme Networks said it has successfully demonstrated key IPv6 functionality with its ExtremeXOS-based portfolio of Ethernet switches.

Tests performed by the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) demonstrated that Extreme Networks’ core to edge network solutions, consisting of the BlackDiamond and Summit switches, supported full featured IPv6 networking that was compliant with the requirements of the IPv6 Forum's Phase 2 IPv6 Ready program.

Extreme Networks’ Summit X250 and X450 fixed switches, and BlackDiamond 8800, 10808 and 12800 modular switches, can provide wire-speed IPv4 and IPv6 Access Control Lists, traffic filtering, wire-speed Layer 2 and Layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6 forwarding and hardware-based IPv6 tunneling through IPv4 networks.
