Implementation of IPv6 over MPLS in tesion backbone

For Versatel (previously tesion), TORRENT initiated the early deployment of IPv6 over MPLS, to fulfil the requirements for the IPv6 connectivity for the Stuttgart-Basel field trial. Versatel (tesion) is now among the first operators in Germany to have IPv6 implemented in their IP backbone. The configuration of IPv6 over MPLS was well tested as preparation for the TORRENT test-bed. This experience was used in a later stage for the integration of IPv6 in the total backbone. IPv6 is now commercially available for customers.
