LISPmob @ EANTC  Public Multi Vendor Interoperability Event 2013

The open-source LISP implementation LISPmob has been tested successfully by EANTC (European Advanced Networking Test Center)

The tests were carried out during the hot-staging event for the EANTC Public Multi-Vendor Interoperability Event 2013. There, LISPmob was certified as a feasible solution for IPv6 transition scenarios. LISPmob capability to carry IPv4/IPv6 traffic over IPv4 or IPv6 core networks was demonstrated.

The good results obtained during the hot-staging event, allowed LISPmob to be publicly shown during the V6 World Congress 2013.

The results of the tests can be consulted on the EANTC white paper available here.
