ARNES is one of the earliest adopters of IPv6 in Europe. A step-by-step, long term approach was chosen to deploy IPv6 into the national backbone and services, beginning with the first IPv6 Land Speed Record in 2002 when GÉANT was piloting IPv6 connectivity.
Today the ARNES backbone is IPv6 ready. Most services are offered to ARNES members over IPv6. ARNES is actively collaborating with the Go6 – Slovenian IPv6 initiative, particularly in organising Slovenian IPv6 summits, conferences, technical workshops as well as providing an active contribution to IPv6 deployment strategy on the national scale, focusing on education and promotion.
Recommendations and best practice documents are being prepared to ensure a smooth deployment of IPv6 for ARNES members.
