    IPv6 on Mobile networks BCOP

  • Massimiliano Stucchi, Hisham Ibrahim - RIPE 78

    IPv6 is moving fast on mobile networks

    !2

    • Lack of guidance for operators

    • RIPE NCC ER Team identified the issue some time ago

  • Massimiliano Stucchi, Hisham Ibrahim - RIPE 78 !3

    Structured approach

    • Built a list of operators

    • Contacted some of them

  • Massimiliano Stucchi, Hisham Ibrahim - RIPE 78 !4

    Findings

    Quite uniform distribution of issues

  • Massimiliano Stucchi, Hisham Ibrahim - RIPE 78 !5

    Preparation work

    • Proof of concept

    • Receiving your allocation from the RIPE NCC - Considering subnet size per user

    - Checking RIPE-690

  • Massimiliano Stucchi, Hisham Ibrahim - RIPE 78 !6

    Vendor support

    • Handsets - Android

    - Apple

    • Infrastructure - Cisco

    - Huawei

    - Ericsson

    - ZTE

  • Massimiliano Stucchi, Hisham Ibrahim - RIPE 78 !7

    APNs

    • Single

    • Multiple - IPv4-only APN for older headsets

    - Gamers on dedicated APN

  • Massimiliano Stucchi, Hisham Ibrahim - RIPE 78 !8

    Implementation scenarios

    • Dual-Stack

    • NAT64

    • 464XLAT

  • Massimiliano Stucchi, Hisham Ibrahim - RIPE 78 !9

    Billing

    • Not all software supports IPv6 - Chances are, IPv6 data will not be billed

    • Upgrade or modifications required

  • Massimiliano Stucchi, Hisham Ibrahim - RIPE 78 !10

    Roaming

    • A network will most likely have roaming users with IPv6

    • Then billing issues might rise

  • Massimiliano Stucchi, Hisham Ibrahim - RIPE 78 !11

    Filtering

    • Filtering software needs to be updated

    • Legal issues might rise - No compliance with local laws/regulations

  • Massimiliano Stucchi, Hisham Ibrahim - RIPE 78 !12

    Document status

    • Document structure set

    • Most of the content still needs to be written

    • Maybe doing a “document sprint” here at the RIPE Meeting

  • Massimiliano Stucchi, Hisham Ibrahim - RIPE 78 !13

    Next steps

    • Talk to more operators to identify smaller issues

    • More work on the document and make it public for review

  • Questions hmi@ripe.net mstucchi@ripe.net
