IPv6 in Sixty Seconds – gogoCPE

MONTREAL (February 4, 2011) – gogo6 inc., the leading provider of IPv6 products, community and services, today announced the release of gogoCPE version 1.0 – a small v6 adaptor for the home that can be installed and providing IPv6 within a minute. Designed to work with, rather than replace home networking equipment, the gogoCPE can be used to deploy IPv6 using IPv4 or to deploy IPv4 using IPv6 – both resulting in a dual-stack home network. Early customers of the gogoCPE include SingTel, Comcast and Globe Telecom.

The gogoCPE is plug ‘n’ play simple and designed to be installed by the end user without any support. The gogoCPE uses the same code as the gogoCLIENT which has reliably provided IPv6 to over 150,000 users of the Freenet6 service.

The gogoCPE supports the most popular transition technologies including TSP, DS-Lite, 6RD, DSTM and L2TP. It is compatible with the gogoSERVER and other manufacturer systems. Its wide technology support allows it to work in any IPv4/v6 network scenario, including:
Providing IPv6 to existing and new customers with IPv4 home routers in an IPv4 network.
Providing IPv4 to new customers with IPv4 home routers in an IPv6 network.
Providing IPv6 to new customers without IPv4 home routers in an IPv4 network.

“Hands down the most difficult part of introducing IPv6 into a broadband network is the home. This is where a majority of the IPv6 costs lie and where service providers have the least control. In a vast majority of the cases the home networking equipment is either not upgradable or owned by the end user making IPv6 synonymous with installing new equipment,” said Bruce Sinclair, gogo6 CEO. “The recent depletion of IPv4 addresses from the IANA pool increases the pressure on service providers to find a simple yet effective solution to offer v6 and v4 by way of v6. Service providers can quickly introduce IPv6 into their networks with a single 1U gogoSERVER and one gogoCPE per home.”

Availability and pricing
The gogoCPE is available today after being tested by service providers around the world. In addition to being sold in volume individual gogoCPEs are available on the gogo6 website. These units are preconfigured to work with Freenet6 making them plug ‘n’ play ready out of the box. Individual units cost $99 plus shipping and handling. Volume pricing is lower.

IPv6 CPE needs? Who you gonne call?

2007_03_15_2i_smallWell you might want to check out the FRITZ!Box solutions from AVM. They currently have 2 modem/routers available for ADSL2+ and VDSL. The WLAN 7270 and 7570 VDSL


There are public beta firmwares available for IPv6 support for the models mentioned above. Those firmware’s can be found on the FRITZ!Box IPv6 Lab website.


With the new firmware the FRITZ!Box can be used right away on provider lines that support IPv6, supporting native IPv6 over PPP. What is more, 6to4 technology has been implemented to allow the use of IPv6 on conventional IPv4 lines.


Features at a glance

* Allows IPv6 to be used in the home network and the Internet
* IPv6CP support for native IPv6 connections over PPP on special lines
* 6to4 support for connecting IPv6 over conventional IPv4 Internet connections
* IPv6 – SixXS Tunnel Broker support ( http://www.sixxs.net)
* Dual-stack concept for simultaneous use of IPv4 and IPv6


Please do take notice of their warning on the IPv6 Lab site:

Important note
This lab firmware is a beta version. We tested the software in standard environments before making it available to the public, but it may still result in malfunctions. AVM will not be liable for any damages that arise from the use of the lab version.

As you can see the IPv6 support is extensive and will most likely provide you with the kind of IPv6 connectivity you need.

The download link for the beta firmware is on the IPv6 lab website and can be found for the 2 currently supported models the 7270 (ADSL2+) and the 7570 (VDSL)
