● Manageable from an ISPs perspective
● IP6CP + DHCPv6 for dynamic configuration
● Exactly the same as PPPoE for IPv4
● Optimum from a networking perspective
● Circuit separation/security ?
– Could be implemented at ethernet level (VLAN
● Package/Service Management ?
– Can be applied locally, but not really easily
manageable in a large scale environment
Pitfalls on the consumer side
● Very few routers available with IPv6 support
● Inconsistency of router vendor
● Currently no DHCPv6 support on our platform
● Windows XP needs IPv4 transport for
● Non-IPv6 capable consumer routers block
Pitfalls on the carrier side
● All our carriers deliver IPv6
● Some carriers still don't have a full-table and
the implementation of their peering
agreements can be unfortunate.
● Some carriers still have to learn, not to take
their IPv4 filtering policies and “just” to apply
them to IPv6.
Where is the killer app ?
● Various websites have enabled IPv6
● We are Google IPv6 weblisted
● When Google end of last year enabled
YouTube, IPv6 skyrocketed
