141 : Deploying IPv6 in University Campus Network - Practical Problems
The article shares experiences of deploying IPv6 on the university campus network and describes the most significant troubles that we have been faced with. The experience is mainly based on the deployment of IPv6 on the campus network at Brno University of Technology which is one of the biggest universities in the Czech Republic. The campus network covers more than 16 locations situated in different parts of Brno. 10Gb/s Ethernet is used as a basic network technology. The national and international connectivity is provided through two 10 Gb/s links connected to the National Research and Education Network (NREN) that is run by CESNET. More than 20000 users use the network and it is a really big challenge to provide functional and stable IPv6 connectivity to all of them.
