IPv6 in Switzerland

So I haven't seen much talk around EF regarding IPv6 So I thought i'd start a discussion for those of us know what it is.
As IPv6 Day (June 8th) is approaching, I started a Poll;
  • How many of you are ready to test this at home?
Whats it About; http://www.worldipv6day.org/
Quote:
On 8 June, 2011, Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Akamai and Limelight Networks will be amongst some of the major organisations that will offer their content over IPv6 for a 24-hour “test flight”. The goal of the Test Flight Day is to motivate organizations across the industry – Internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies – to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition as IPv4 addresses run out.
They are many IPv6 Brokers out there to connect and obtain a IPv6 Address and test away.

Most are already operating over IPv6;

http://www.v6.facebook.com

I'd like to know about peoples experiences and find out if anyone has managed to get IPv6 directly routed on there network without a broker.

No, but I know what it is.

However, all my stuff (at home/work) is setup for IPv4.

Think I'll just wait for IPv8 to come around.

Re: IPv6 in Switzerland

There are two ways to bridge the gap between IPv4 and IPv6 - 6to4 and 6rd. The latter is being used by free.fr in France and also considered for the future by Swisscom. It's a better method of implementation than 6to4.

Also educational institutions are able to give you a native IPv6 address AFAIK.

In my opinion, nothing will happen until the address space runs out and new services cannot be added to the Internet. Given that there seems to be a trade in native addresses beginning, I think we have a couple of years.

Work-wise, there is only 2 drivers that might - and it's an outside might - drive a IPv6 migration......one is the addition of thousands of iPads and other 21st century toys and the other is IPSEC (which can be added to IPv4 with a plastic spatula and some crayons).

To sum up, for the masses, there is no point and nobody knows anything about it. The Internet will work or it won't. But I think those with Swisscom-supplied VDSL routers will at some point get 6rd - but live behind their NATted modem/router.

Re: IPv6 in Switzerland

For the technically inclined here's a quick glimpse at where Swisscom is with IPv6.

Re: IPv6 in Switzerland

After seeing a post about a company only offering IPv6, I was wondering how this is progressing.

Remember years ago when I used Swisscom, that you could setup your Swisscom router to enable IPv6.

My current Cable Internet service company say they are not yet planning to support IPv6 as they have sufficient IPv4 addresses available.

I guess even when the internet connection switches to IPv6 any devices connecting over wireless/wired in your house could continue to use IPv4 and is then translated/transmitted over the IPv6 address of your internet connection.

Just to clarify, InterXS offers native Prefix Delegation IPv6 and NATed IPv4 so as standard all devices from InterXS customer will have both IPv6 and IPv4 connectivity so in principle no loss for the majority of the people. No translation from IPv4 to IPv6 exists (AFAIK there is no such thing as IPv4 to IPv6 translation)

When your Cable Internet provider starts offering you IPv6 the same will happen, you devices will have at least one IPv6 and a NATed IPv4 (your router will do the NAT), so no translation. You will then be able to access IPv4 only and IPv6 only services in the net.
