IPv6 Showcase

Prof. Kalkbrenner, Prof. Rebensburg, Prof Schnor

The Institute of Informatics at the University of Potsdam initiated together with T-Systems and other partners from industry and research the project "IPv6 Showcase" in 2002. The goal was to evaluate whether IPv6 was already in a status where it could be used in practice. The appointed IPv6 lab at the institute allowed measurements of performance and conformity. The project identified problems with the deployment of IPv6 and has developed various solutions. Moreover, the project has been providing various implementations of IPv6-based applications.
