jordi palet alta2One of the main issues when an ISP is planning to deliver IPv6 services is to decide how to address the customers. In a generic way, we could say that the first thing to do for any IPv6 deployment is the complete network addressing plan, even before obtaining your addressing space from your Regional Internet Registry (RIR), so you get it right from the very beginning.

In the case of corporate customers, generally nobody doubts that they should receive a /48 IPv6 GUA (Global Unicast Address) at every end-site, and of course, those prefixes should be persistent (often called static) to each customer.

In the case of residential customers, small office/home office (SOHO) customers or even SME customers, in IPv4, we are used to a single non-persistent (often called dynamic) public address. Moreover, because of IPv4 address exhaustion, we are moving towards private addresses in the customer WAN by means of Carrier Grade Network Address Translation (CGN),

So, what is the right thing to do in the case of IPv6 for residential and SOHO customers? This is the question we are trying to address in this article.

Connecting the next 1 Billion: It is not easy, but it is doable!

My attendance and participation at the Internet Governance Forum in Jalisco, Mexico, late last year, made possible with the kind and generous support of AFRINIC, through the Fire Africa program, made me realize that I have a critical role to play, in the global goal of connecting the next 1 billion people into the Internet.
