Hi All,

I would like to know whether IPv6 deployment can be carried out with Cisco's 6PE architecture. Is it standardized and started working fine? Initially i thought of implementing it with GRE (ipv6ipv4) tunnels.

Any help is appreciated.

thanks in advance

Thanks for the response.

i read that there is no concept of network ip and broadcast ip in per subnet (eventually we were wasting 2 ip's per subnet) but in ipv6 there is no concept of wasting ip addresses like this.. so for a point to point connectin can i allcoate an ip address X:X:X:X:X::X/127.. Is it allowable to assign the ipaddresses like that.. because mostly im seeing the prefix allocated is of /64..

thanks in advance..

even in ipv6 , your point to pint ip address should not be of same subnet. It works only on link local address. If you are using OSPF then site local and global local addreses are required.
