  1. “IPv6 activities and incentives in European countries – results from TRIS survey” Natalija Gelvanovska Head of Access and Networks Section Communications Regulatory Authority of the Republic of Lithuania (RRT) The view expressed in this presentation is a personal view of the author and do not necessarily represent the view of RRT Lithuanian broadband developments TRIS Survey on IPv6 2014-06-07 • 2014-06-07 1 Slide • 1 Slide

  2. About the Survey • At the moment there is no benchmarking methodology for IPv6 deployment at the international level: • Outlines for Measuring IPv6 deployment (set of parameters) were drafted by OECD in May, 2009 • Objective of TRIS survey: to create a brief overview of IPv6 related activities in TRIS countries: • Do not pretend being a comprehensive study. There might be more IPv6 facilities existing, that author may not be aware off; • Exclude IPv6 activities in academic networks; • 19 countries were investigated in terms of IPv6 related activities. • Following areas were investigated: • public incentives and market activities related to IPv6 deployment; • regulator’s role and incentives encouraging  IPv6 deployment. • Following information was summarized: • Contributions of TRIS members; • Contributions to ITU TSB Circular 30 concerning a questionnaire on IPv6 following WTSA-08 Resolution 64 (Questionnaire IPv6 address allocation and encouraging the deployment of IPv6); • information form National IPv6 Task Force pages.

  5. National IPv6 Task Forces • Source: TRIS Survey; http://www.eu.ipv6tf.org/in/i-enlaces.php

  6. Less active countries • Lithuania, Latvia, Romania, Bulgaria, Norway do not have National Task Forces established; • Situation in Lithuania, Latvia, Romania and Denmark might be described as following: • nobody is promoting/encouraging IPv6 deployment or at least there is nothing organized. • However in Denmark: public procurement strategy as a rule calls for IPv6 enabled solutions; National Strategy and Action plan are being drafted. • Denmark (in 2003) and Greece (in 2009) have established Task Forces; • Bulgaria: in 2008 the second (after the first operated by RENATER in France) Europe’s lab for IPv6 training and research was established: • Managed by Bulgarian State Agency for ICT-DAITS; • Active co-operation with EU projects, i.e. 6DEPLOY; • Over 100 experts were trained already. • http://www.ipv6-taskforce.dk TRIS Survey on IPv6

  7. Austria • http://www.austria.ipv6tf.org/ • Austrian IPv6 Task force established in 2004: • concentrates on the economic aspects within the Austrian business environment; • established 5 working groups established to investigate the Austrian situation with regard to Infrastructure, Transition, Access, Applications and Business Opportunities and Regulation; • Chaired by Telecom Austria; • In 2005 TF presented Austrian IPv6 Roadmap: http://www.ipv6taskforce.at/roadmap/ • September 2004: IPv6 was enabling on the CC-TLD domain servers; • January 2005: IPv6 peering was incorporating in the standard ISP peering service at the Vienna Internet Exchange (VIX); • European Commission IPv6 Conference, 2006 (http://www.ipv6-convergence-vienna.net/) Austria claims to be ready for IPv6. Telekom Austria said 4 ISPs are IPv6-customers of the incumbent. Based on allocated IP numbers, only Finland and Switzerland had more numbers allocated per inhabitant in 2006 Source: Warren's Washington Internet Daily, Volume 7; Issue 107, 2006 TRIS Survey on IPv6

  8. Belgium • Belgian IPv6 Task force established in 2003: • Coordinated by Brussels Universities: • Scientific type of activities; Light structure; No legal existence • Support from Belgian ISP association, BELNET, BELTUG, “.be” ccTLD • A number of significant events were hosted: • Belgian IPv6 Event (http://www.ipv6event.be/), 2003; • Global IPv6 Service Launch Event (http://www.global-ipv6.net/), 2004; • IPv6 Spring 2004 Event (http://www.ipv6spring2004.be/), 2004; • European IPv6 Day, 2008(http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/policy/ipv6/events/presentations/index_en.htm) • http://www.ipv6tf.be/ TRIS Survey on IPv6

  9. Germany http://www.ipv6council.de • The biggest Internet nation in Europe. The Internet population amounts to approx. 53 million users. This corresponds to an average spreading of 65%. National IPv6 Taskforce created in 2003 (chaired by T- Systems) yielded ground to the German IPv6 Council; • The German IPv6 Council is a chapter of the IPv6 Forum (world-wide consortium of worldwide leading Internet vendors) and it was founded in 2007 in the Hasso Plattner institute (HPI) in Potsdam : • Chaired by HPI; 18 members from industry, politics and research; • German IPv6 Summit 2004 (http://linda.ipv6.berkom.de/summit/index.html); • IPv6 in Berlin, 2008 (http://www.ipv6council.de/events/german_ipv6_summit/programme.html) • 2009: International IPv6 Application contest, International IPv6 Summit • May, 2009: National IPv6 Action Plan: • http://www.ipv6council.de/fileadmin/summit09/Aktionsplan.pdf; • More focus on non technical IPv6 deployment environment. TRIS Survey on IPv6

  10. Finland • http://www.fi.ipv6tf.org/ • National IPv6 task force was created in 2002: • Chaired by FICORA; over 30 participants meet quarterly; • Two IPv6 seminars and two IPv6 questionnaires were held: • IST Event. Session "The New Internet: IPv6 Drivers and Challengesin 2006: http://europa.eu.int/information_society/istevent/2006/cf/network-detail.cfm?id=512 • Documents handled in the group may be found there: http://www.ficora.fi/index/palvelut/palvelutaiheittain/standardointi/standardointiryhmat/ipv6.html • The idea: active promotion of IPv6 deployment, without regulatory requirements and financial support of transition. • FICORA is responsible for “.fi” ccTLD administration. Implementation of IPv6 support for “.fi” was divided in three steps: • To provide IPv6 connectivity for the “.fi” root name servers: In 2006 was implemented the first name server D.fi with IPv6 address. At the moment there are 3 name servers supporting IPv6, including one based on anycast technology with more than 20 name servers worldwide; • To allow “.fi” domain names to use name servers with IPv6 addresses: implemented in May, 2009 through an on-line management service; • To have registration/on-line management system available via IPv6: planned for 1Q, 2011.
