1 2005.8.23IPv6 Task Force APAN-JP NOC Report on IPv6 2005.8.23 Kazunori Konishi APAN-JP NOC
2 2005.8.23IPv6 Task Force History 1998.2: IPv6 activity started with Hitachi’s IPv6 router NR60, lead by WIDE project: –IPv6 over IPv4 tunnel –WIDE’s pTLA: 3ffe:500::/24 –BGP4+ –IPv6 links: ESnet, SingAREN, APAN-KR, vBNS 2000.5: WIDE’s sNLA1: 2001:200:900::/40 → local connections via WIDE’s NSPIXP2 2001.1: APAN-JP’s pTLA: 3ffe:8140::/28 → start to increase IPv6 connections. 2002.5: IPv4/IPv6 Dual Stack connections to TW 2002.7: Dual Stack connections to 6TAP/TransPAC.
3 2005.8.23IPv6 Task Force Current Traffic Volume 6TAP NSPIXP6 little traffic!
4 2005.8.23IPv6 Task Force IPv6 BGP logical MAP @ Tokyo XP RR#2RR#1 tpr4(Pro8812) Koganei-M20 apii-juniper(M10) DIXIE-GW (Hitachi GR) eBGP iBGP tpr2 (M20) tpr3 (M20) Cluster ID: 0.0.0.2 tpr5(T640) Nspixp6 (commodity) nspixp6 (commodity) CERNET(CN) CSTNET(CN) ASCC(TW) TransPAC2(US) Ipv6 Users (JP) ASTI(PH) Hawaii(US) JP IPv6 Users JP IPv6 Users CERNET(CN) CSTNET(CN) ASCC(TW) JGN Chicago(US) Ipv6 Users (JP) KOREN(KR) tppr (cisco 7206) Jin Tanaka AUP free only for IPv6
5 2005.8.23IPv6 Task Force Import policy Community Add: IPV6_FULL_ROUTE_EXCHANGE (Community value : 7660:4) Export policy IF IPV6_FULL_ROUTE_EXCHANGE (Community value : 7660:4) ACCEPT then REJECT Sharing BGP community Value 7660:4 IPv6 routing using AS-path length with BGP community The number of IPv6 full routes that APAN-JP has is about 800 routes. –But, the number of IPv6 full routes receiving is different from JP(about 600) and the US(about 800). –Because there is a difference in the the way of IPv6 route summarize. IPv6 BGP Exchange Peers: Abilene, APAN member networks, and JP networks including commercial ISPs via NSPIXP6 Jin Tanaka
6 2005.8.23IPv6 Task Force Who can drive IPv6 deployment? Japanese governments’ e-Japan project is promoting the deployment of IPv6 from 2001; annual budget is more than 50M USD?? But real traffic volume is still low. US White House has set the deadline of June 2008 for all agencies’ infrastructure (network backbones) to adopt IPv6, and for agency networks to interface with this infrastructure. → at least Dual Stack. Government initiatives are very effective for the development in the initial stage, but …
7 2005.8.23IPv6 Task Force Features of IPv6 1.Huge address space: 128 bits 2.Security: IPsec 3.Plug & Play: without DHCP server 4.etc. But IPv6 doesn’t have any dramatic features, except the huge address space. Question: Can R&E networks make full use of the huge address space? My answer: No, except China. We should remember that IPv4 deployment was lead by Microsoft Windows. JP IT headquarter will allocate IPv6 international activities in Asia.
8 2005.8.23IPv6 Task Force Who can make full use of the huge address space? Both 3GPP and 3GPP2 will adopt IPv6. Electrical appliance will adopt IPv6. Game machines Home security system etc.
9 2005.8.23IPv6 Task Force Transition Time into IPv6 Transition Time: The cost of IPv6 system will be almost equal with the one of the equivalent IPv4 system When: in several year Duration: a few years. Cost is the most critical factor for driving the transition.
10 2005.8.23IPv6 Task Force Transition Share of IPv4 Transition period should be as short as possible. Cost of IPv4 versus IPv6 Year 2005 equal Cost is the critical factor for the transition! 2015 Flag Day
11 2005.8.23IPv6 Task Force Personal View “Flag Day” should be discussed and planned. Transition should be completed as short as possible, for the network quality as well as the economy. The stakeholders of the transition are the commercial sectors, rather than the R&E networks. R&E network folks can support the transition, but can’t play the leading role at the transition phase.
12 2005.8.23IPv6 Task Force Role of R&E Networks R&E network folks will contribute a lot for the advanced network technologies, rather than the transition: –Development of advanced network technologies –Prototyping of advanced system –High performance end to end system –Network security tools
