The Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA), Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU-Q), and Qatar University (QU) have collaborated to set up two Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) testing laboratories at the two universities, where the testing labs will:


- Show IPv6 in action so that institutions can see all the components that go into making such a network operational.

- Provide an IPv6 environment so that institutions can bring their test systems and test them for IPv6 operation.

- Focus the training to practical and fundamental aspects of IPv6.


The labs are available to IPv6 Taskforce members, as well as government and private sectors entities that are interested in learning about IPv6 and testing situations.

This document describes the IPv6 testing labs processes and procedures, how to request access, and the rules that govern the use of the labs.
