The main objectives of the project are to build and operate a dedicated international pilot IPv6 network, and use this network to validate that the demands for the continuous growth of the global Internet can be met with the new IPv6 technology, by using state of the art IPv6 applications. The migration strategies for integrating IPv6 with the existing IPv4 infrastructure (core and access networks) will also be validated. A further aim is to evaluate the deployment and manageability of a large IPv6 network including physical infrastructure, address allocation, registries, routing and DNS operation. In this way, the project will help European research and industry to play a leading role in defining the next generation of networking and application technologies. CTI/RU6 is assistant contractor to GRNET.
