Funded under: FP5-IST

Abstract

This document provides a brief update on the achievements of a project funded under the "Research Networking" theme of the FP5 Information Society Technologies (IST) programme. It describes the objectives, experimental work and results of the project.

The goal of the Euro6IX project is to contribute, support and play a key role in the introduction of IPv6 in Europe. One of the main tasks is the research, design and deployment of a native Pan-European IPv6 network - the Euro6IX testbed - which can be considered as a complete testbed of the future Internet IPv6 since it includes most Internet elements (External Peerings, International Backbone of IPv6 dedicated links, IXs, Leaf Nodes) and actors (Operators/ISPs, R&D Organizations, Network Consultants, Vendors, Beta-tester Users).
