6NET Report Summary

Project ID: IST-2001-32603
Funded under: FP5-IST
Country: Belgium

Helped European research and industry to play a leading role in defining the next generation of networking and application technologies that go beyond the current state of the art

The innovation of 6NET ranged from the many service support development activities, through to the building and operation (including management) of the network, so that it could be used for the application trials. For example: * Auto-configuration, and the relationship between auto-configuration and User/Terminal management, multihoming, multicast, performance, and roaming. * Support for class-of-service (in the form of a 'Traffic Class' field compliant with the IETF DiffServ model). * IPSec * Development and testing of network services such as DNS, multicast routing, etc. * Design, implementation and test of both intra-domain and inter-domain IPv6 multicast. Interoperability with IPv4 multicast too. * Interoperability between IPv6 network services and IPv4 network services. Mobility (wireless-only LANs in an end-site environment, ranging from 802.11b, Bluetooth and 802.11a, through to the convergence of mobile and fixed network technologies. * New applications that will stress the network and be used to evaluate the benefits to end-users that IPv6 can bring, through the expanded IP addresses, integrated auto-configuration, quality-of-service (QoS), mobility and security.
