This SWG is working on activities for ensuring the interoperability of the equipments that implemented "MIPv6 (Mobile IPv6)" and "NEMO (Network Mobility)" from that use wide as a way to realize mobile communications is expected.
"MIPv6" and "NEMO" are the protocols that realize mobile communications, and enable use of an IPv6 network as a network of mobile communications.
The equipments that implemented "MIPv6" and "NEMO" can maintain communicative reachability even while moving the segments of the IPv6 networks.
In view of the spread of IPv6 networks, and extension of the mobile communications field, we assume that the equipment that implemented these functions has demand, and consider that development of equipment and ensuring of quality need to be supported.
We develop the test specifications and tools to validate the equipment as a means to ensure interoperability between equipments.
The purpose of this activity is to promote the wide use of them, and to establish them as the international standard of test specification for the equipment.
In the following events, we cordinate the interoperability test and validated our test tools.
- Connectathon by SUN Microsystems
- ETSI IPv6 Plugtest by ETSI
- TAHI Interoperability Test Event by TAHI Project
We would like to express thanks to the following organizations.
- Chunghwa Telecom(TAIWAN)
- IPv6 Forum
- KAME Project(JAPAN)
- TAHI Project(JAPAN)
- USAGI Project(JAPAN)
This activity was supported in part by a grant from MIC(Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications) and NICT(National Institute of Information and Communications Technology).
