We're using both cisco and juniper in Verio for our IPv6 services and have been since it's launch (I think it was Oct/Nov 03). Running the dual-stack native service has been fairly straightforward. There are a few networks that are doing the dual-stack native thing. Others (eg: sprintv6 as seen in peoples traces to peters v6 clock) are doing tunneled infrastucture/overlay networks to support their IPv6 customers. This obviously has drawbacks that if you aggregate packets in a few locations (eg: asia, east-us, west-us, europe) for your tunneled stuff then have a full-mesh for their igp, the metrics don't always make sense. Combined with tunnels going long distances that don't reflect RTT and people still doing full transit to anyone they can tunnel with cause some interesting paths. One thing i find promising/good: Lots of people here sent their v6 traces to the list, so it's not just a few random geeks messing with v6 as much anymore, it's there. - jared -- Jared Mauch | pgp key available via finger from [email protected] clue++; | http://puck.nether.net/~jared/ My statements are only mine.
