JDSU has announced enhanced features, including support for the roll-out of IPv6, for its HST-3000 handheld all-in-one access test platform.
Originally called "IP Next Generation" (IPng), IPv6 is expected to replace the current IP protocol (IPv4). It supports quality of service (QoS) parameters for real-time audio and video and is designed to fix the shortcomings of IPv4, including data security issues.
The HST-3000’s new IPv6 features provide the ability to test IPv6 connectivity, throughput, latency and packet jitter. Tests supported include verification of stateless or stateful address auto-configuration; IPv6 ping; traffic generation; and the ability to receive, filter and report IPv4 or IPv6 traffic.
