AGH University embraces Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6)


New IPv6 Lab donated by CISCO is a part of International Network of Training Facilities


Cisco and AGH University of Science and Technology are proud to announce the opening of laboratory for training and research in the new Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) in AGH Computer Science Centre.

    Located at the Department of Computer Science, the lab is an integral part of an international network of IPv6 training and research facilities and it is connected to some 20 similar centers around the globe. Cisco donated the lab's networking and communications equipment.
    In terms of technology and equipment, the lab is a replica of another IPv6 education lab established in Paris. The labs are interconnected through GEANT, the pan-European data network dedicated to the research and education communities. The resources can be used redundantly: if someone needs to conduct a test and one of the labs is busy at the time, the researcher can be directed to another lab and use its equipment remotely.
  Operating under the umbrella of the 6DEPLOY-2 project funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Program, the objective of the lab is to provide an open environment for validating solutions, network setups and applications built on the next-generation Internet Protocol, known as IPv6. Internet experts, including academics, government administrators and telecom specialists, can be trained both on-site and through virtual access in innovative information and communications technology solutions relating to the adoption of IPv6.
