|Making Auto-Negotiation & Link Training Reliable and Why It Matters||Kae Dube, UNH-IOL & Joshua Harsch & Craig Foster, Teledyne LeCroy||Learn about Auto-Negotiation (ANEG) and Link Training (LT) by looking at common issues folks may run into during testing. Successful ANEG and LT have shown to reduce overall installation time while minimizing the risk of ongoing mistakes. This video will cover an introduction to ANEG: Why it’s used and how it's implemented, how ANEG reduces time for manual configuration and minimizes 'mistakes' and much more!||Tutorials||August 31, 2022|

|Moonv6 2004 Whitepaper||UNH-IOL||
The November test set explored several new areas, including VoIP via Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), wireless LANS and streaming video via Multicast. Particular areas of testing included IPsec, DNS, DHCP, iSCSI, routing, tunneling and QoS. The November testing was attended by 16 different vendors, and results proved that IPv6 is stable and capable of running key data communications applications (voice-based services and multicast).

|Moonv6 2005 Whitepaper||UNH-IOL||
This round of testing aimed to improve the conformance, stability, and internetworking capability of multiple commercial implementations of IPv6. The event was attended by 11 organizations. Where previous rounds of testing were focused on testing core network areas, objectives for this round were to demonstrate advances in IPv6 applications, including DHCP, voice services, mobility, DHCP, DNS/DHCP resolution, application layer (VoIP), and security (IPsec). A successful VoIP call was made over IPv6 from New Hampshire to South Korea using commercial software.

|MPLS World Congress 2004||MFA and EANTC||
This interoperability evaluation focused on the transport of differentiated services on a multi-vendor MPLS backbone supporting MPLS traffic engineering. The MPLS World Congress 2004 demonstrated differentiated services over MPLS and MPLS traffic engineering. Multi-vendor MPLS/BGP VPN\'s and Layer 2 Ethernet VPN\'s (Martini and VPLS) were configured to prove that services were traffic engineering-enabled and could process differentiated services.

The second MPLS World Congress interoperability event included 10 different companies and was hosted by the MPLS Forum and Frame Relay Alliance at the EANTC labs in Berlin, Germany. The demonstration, held at the MPLS World Congress in Paris, proved that MPLS Layer 2 Ethernet-based VPNs are ready for large scale deployment. Also demonstrated were minimal MPLS ping and traceroute implementations.

|MPLS World Congress 2006||Jambi Ganbar, Jonathan Morin, Cartsen Rossenhoevel, and Gabriele Schrenk||
The MPLS World Congress 2006 interoperability event included 15 different companies and was hosted by the EANTC and UNH-IOL and was endorsed by the MPLS Forum and Frame Relay Alliance, held in Berlin, Germany. This event focused the convergence of both old and new MPLS services such as VPLS, BGP-VPNs, Layer 2 VPNs while still being guaranteed by Fast Reroute and MPLS Diff Serve. The event was especially successful in focusing on converged services as it included all classes of MPLS devices.

|OSRM January 2004||Chris Volpe, Ichiro Inoue, Kaori Shimizu, Yumiko Kawashima, and Tom Dimicelli||
The first OSRM event, held at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), provided an aggressive carrier-class environment for GMPLS testing including several GMPLS interworking scenarios that had not been achieved in previous multi-vendor test settings. The testing, conducted by the UNH-IOL OSRM test group, involved a variety of test cases that focused on stability testing, control channel fault handling and data channel failure recovery.

The second UNH-IOL OSRM test event included seven different companies and was designed in collaboration with Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp. (NTT) and the participants to validate and prove GMPLS functionality in a multi-vendor network. This collaboration generated an exceptionally realistic and demanding test suite in line with service providers\' operational demands, rather than simple conformance or interoperability scenarios.

|OSRM Test Event 2005||Henry He, Takumi Ohba, Kaori Shimizu, Chris Volpe, John Allen, Ankur Chadda, and Scott Larsonk||
The third UNH-IOL OSRM test event was designed with a new focus on the failure recovery mechanisms of a GMPLS network. The event provided a vendor-neutral setting that gave participants an opportunity to assess interoperability and valuable feedback to assist them in refining their implementations. Testing included interconnected products demonstrating the functionality of various aspects of explicit route and label control to set up GMPLS traffic engineered most suitable path, control channel failure recovery, data plane failure recovery by multi-layer traffic engineering, end-to-end protection in signaling, and the ability of GMPLS to manage diverse networks with increased scalability.
