Introduction of Tokyo6to4


  • Trial IPv6 environment for IPv4 users

    • Initially focus on 6to4, which has been developed widely

    • Teredo and ISATAP will be considered.

  • Deployment of co-existence technologies of IPv4 and IPv6

    • Share config/operation techniques

    • Configuration and operational status will be published

What is 6to4
What is 6to4?

  • A technique to send IPv6 packets over IPv4 network

    • No explict tunnel configuration required

    • Require a Global Ipv4 address

      • Can not be used through a NAT

  • Maps an IPv4 address to a IPv6 address

    • In a case of

2002:c000:022a: (/48)

example of Windows XP SP3

Motivation for users
Motivation for users

  • To encourage many IPv4 users to try IPv6 with automatic tunnel techniques such as

    6to4, Teredo, ISATAP

    • 6to4 is implemented in Windows XP, Vista, and some broadband routers including AirMac Extreme

    • 6to4 is just a trial environment for introduction phase of IPv6

      • Until global deployment of production quality IPv6 network

  • No 6to4 relay router operational in Japan

    • One operated by KDDI Laboratories (http://www.6to4.jp/) completed operation in Mar 2006

Motivation for network operators
Motivation for Network Operators

  • Introduction of automatic tunneling as a co-exsiting technique of IPv4 and IPv6

    • We wish many 6to4 relay routers operational

    • We wish native IPv6 network widely deployed

  • Current Project overview

    • A Dell PE1850 w/ Quagga is used for 6to4 relay

    • Disclose information for a reference of IPv6 environment operation

      • Hardware and software configuration

      • Traffic information

      • No privacy information is disclosed

6to4 Relay Router

  • If a JP user use 6to4 (unintentionally), the packets are routed via a 6to4 relay router in US or in Europe

    • Larger RTT

    • Lower network performance

To identify your 6to4 relay router:

  • IPv4IPv6: traceroute

  • IPv6IPv4: traceroute6 2002:c058:6301::

  • Tokyo6to4 Router results in improvement of

    • Smaller RTT

    • Improved network performance

      It provides IPv6 connectivity until native IPv6 network is widely deployed.

The result
The Result

  • RTT to www.kame.net via 6to4:

    • About 190ms to less than 10ms

Overview of the project
Overview of the Project

  • Tokyo6to4 Project

    • Volunteer based group from younger ISP/iDC engineers and researchers

    • Neutral to all existing institutions

  • Those who contributed:

    • Yuichiro Tahara, Shin Shirahata, Shuichi Okubo, Miyoko Kumaki, Ryoko Nakanishi, Katsuhiro Horiba, and others

  • Advisors:

    • Akira Kato, Osamu Nakamura, Hiroshi Esaki, Yuji Sekiya

The operation
The operation

  • A limited operation period planned

    • 2 years?

    • Scalability issues

    • Separation of production IPv6 services

    • Its biz model is difficult to establish

      • 6to4 is a kind of public service

  • Difference to 6to4.jp by KDDI Lab.

    • IPv4 Anycast (


  • Oct 25, 2008 to 26 dawn

    • Installation of a server in a Keio campus

  • Nov, 2008

    • Performance test in a iDC

  • Nov 6, 2008

    • AS number (AS38646) get allocated

  • Dec 2, 2008

    • Server installed in KDDI Otemachi building

    • Peering over DIX-IE started

    • Advertise to the peers

  • Current peering status

    • Established with 17 ASes (ISP,R&E network)

    • Peering solicited over DIX-IE

      • Especially these ASes which only has oversea 6to4 relay routes
