D4.7p 2nd "Trials and evaluation" report

This document describes the chosen demonstration scenarios of the 2nd Years Public Trial of the Euro6IX project that was scheduled at the "Global IPv6 Service Launch Event" in Brussels, January 2004. Because of the actual lack of big number of Euro6IX "native" customers the 2nd Year Public Trial was again realized as an impressive demonstration at this very important IPv6 event that attracted lots of international visitors of this conference as well as the representatives from the European Commission and from other European projects. This deliverable D4.7p describes the demonstration activities of the 2nd Year Public Trial in more detail and show how these scenarios are related to the Euro6IX specific project conditions.

The four main objectives of the Euro6IX project are:
1) To research an appropriate architecture to design and deploy the first Pan-European non-commercial IPv6 Internet Exchange (IX) Network
2) To use the deployed IPv6 IX infrastructure to research, test and validate IPv6-based applications and services
3) To open the Euro6IX network to specific user groups and
4) To do dissemination, liaison and coordination with clusters, fora, and standards organizations.

In order to fulfil the second of these main project objectives, several trial activities (Internal Trials and Public Trials) are scheduled on a yearly basis. These trials are organized and carried out in Activity 4.3 of Work package 4. This document describes the organization, realization and the results of the 2nd Year Public Trial event, which was scheduled for Month 30 of the project lifetime (June 2004) and was realized already as Milestone 4.7 in the form of a very successful demonstration at the Global IPv6 Service Launch Event in Brussels/Belgium already in January 2004.

The structure of this deliverable D4.7p "2nd 'Trials and Evaluation' Report" is as follows:
-·Chapter 1 gives a short introduction to the 2nd Year Public Trial and clarifies the objectives of this kind of public trial.
-·Chapter 2 contains an overview about the general approach of the 2nd Year Public Trial and the preparation of these trials
-·Chapter 3 enhances this deliverable with a detailed description of the shown demonstration scenarios of the Global IPv6 Service Launch Event (including the achieved results).
-·Chapter 4 concludes this deliverable D4.7p with a short summary of the 2nd Year Public Trial and some lessons learned during preparation and realization of the "Global IPv6 Service Launch Event" demo.

In summary it can be said that the 2nd Year Public Trial of the Euro6IX project contained besides a very sophisticated IPv6 network set-up, lots of very interesting and successful IPv6 scenario demonstrations.

The 2nd Year Public trial highlighted the achievements of the Euro6IX project and attracted the attendees of the Global IPv6 Service Launch Event and the EC very much. Hence the objectives of the 2nd Public Trial, as written down in the Technical Annex of the Euro6IX project, were met.
