What's Orcon's roadmap for getting ipv6 to customers? ipv4 has only 6.2% of space left (as of today) so ipv6 is getting more and more important.

Not many ISPs are taking it seriously as of yet.

Yea, I've been watching ipv6 in NZ for the last 8 years or so. No one seems to be taking much notice apart from WxC/Xnet. A few years ago I even emailed the Orcon CEO (at the time) and offered to setup an ipv6 tunnel system on his network, but they couldn't justify it.

We have IPv6 in our core and are trialing it to the DSL network currently.

Not many CPEs support PPPoA IPv6 which has slowed things down.

What are CPEs?

If it helps, my home network is IPv6 already. Including the router, which is running in 'node in the IPv6 internet' mode.

This is true.. I ended up buying a Cisco 877 for the wxc IPv6 trial..
I doubt you guys can afford to be giving out 877's or the like to trialists ;)

Interesting.

Just recently switched from a Dynalink RTA 1320 to a DrayTek Vigor120 and set up PPoA to PPoE bridging. Would that work with IPv6, seeing as the router (an AirPort Extreme) does?

How about the cohosting services - plans to trial out to them as well?

What CPE's support ipv6 via PPPoA at the moment? I'd be keen on being part of a trial as I already have ipv6 on my internal network via a tunnel.

The Cisco 857(or 837, not sure)/877's will do it..

I would imagine that Orcon and any other ISP in NZ for that matter still have enough unused IPv4 space they they are in no short term danger of running out. APNIC was allocated another /8 not so long ago so there should be a fair bit around still to come.

I may be wrong but as far as I know only Vocus offer IPv6 international connectivity, and they do dual stack v4 and v6 so it does put a constraint on your connectivity options.

I for one am not looking forward to providing an IP address over the phone, specially if not in the shortened form.

Any time frames for that? Then I know when I need to upskill ... :-)
