IPv6 Working Group Agenda

Session I : Wednesday, 26 September, 14:00 – 15:30

A. Welcome and administrative items

  • Agenda bashing
  • Minutes of RIPE 64
  • Announcements

B. Implementing IPv6 in RCS & RDS Network
(Liviu Pislaru, Chief Architect for IPv6, RCS & RDS)

More than 1 million RCS & RDS residential customers can now use native IPv6 on a dual stack PPPoE connection and 20% already do. Our
presentation is about this achievement, more specifically about the history of IPv6 in our network, success factors and obstacles that we encountered.

C. World IPv6 Launch
(Yannis Nikolopoulos, OTE, Greece)

An overview of OTE’s preparation for World IPv6 Launch and a discussion of things that went wrong (expected or unexpected) and what was done to remedy the situation for the short and long term.

D. IPv6 deployment in Forthnet
(Tassos Chatzithomaoglou, Forthnet)

The deployment of IPv6 dual-stack in Forthnet, also including our latest tests on DS-Lite and radius-based semi-dynamic IPv6 assignment.

E. IPv6 CPE Survey 2012
(Marco Hogewoning, RIPE NCC)

Introduction to the new IPv6 CPE Survey

F. IPv6 RIPEness
(Emile Aben, RIPE NCC)

Measuring IPv6 in production at LIRs

G. Wrap up


Session II : Thursday, 27 September, 09:00 – 10:30

H. Welcome back

I. L2 issues and solutions
(Eric Vyncke, Cisco)

Overview of the IPv6-related layer 2 issues that got raised over time, such as user separation in shared access networks. Work being done in the IETF to resolve such issues and the current state of implementation of these techniques.

J. IETF work on operational security for an IPv6 network
(Merike Kaeo, Double Shot Security)

Merike will introduce the other IPv6-related security work being undertaken by the various IETF working groups.

K. KATR Catalogue of (IPv6) routers
(Ondrej Filip, CZ.NIC)

The router catalog offers reviews of home user routers. The main aim of our reviews is to test support of new technologies in routers, such as for the IPv6 protocol or the DNSSEC extension to DNS.

L. IETF Work on transitioning techniques for multicast traffic
(Tom Taylor, PT Taylor Consulting)

The IETF has produced a number of tools for transition from IPv4 to IPv6, but most of them have not been specifically applicable to
multicast. One tool that is specifically applicable is Automatic Multicast Tunneling (AMT, draft-ietf-mboned-64-multicast-address-format-04), which is in production in the AT&T network. RFC 6145 applies to stateless translation of multicast as well as unicast, but there is as yet no multicast equivalent to RFC 6052.

Several existing drafts provide additional tools for dealing with various multicast transition scenarios. Even though they have operator support, most of them are gated on receiving evidence of more widespread support before they can proceed.

The purpose of this presentation is to provoke a discussion of which if any transition scenarios will be common enough to be worth the effort of standardizing tools to deal with them. The results will be used to feed back into draft-ietf-mboned-v4v6-mcast-ps-00 in the MBONED Working Group.

M. Why NAT64 must win
(Andy Davidson)

5 to 10 year view of IPv6 transitional technology

N. Results of the 2012 Global IPv6 Survey
(Maarten Botterman, GNKS Consult)

As in previous years, the Number Resource Organization (NRO) conducted a survey on the current and future use of IPv6. The purpose of the survey is to better understand where the community is moving, and what can be done to ensure the Internet community is ready and moving toward widespread adoption of IPv6. As it is mostly the same as the survey carried out globally in 2010 and 2011, comparison of progress will be possible.

O. Wrap up and discussion on future work
