AARNet has a block of IPv6 address space for allocation to customers

Version six of the Internet Protocol

IPv6 is the Internet Engineering Task Force's (IETF) response to the imminent exhaustion of IPv4 address space.

Native IPv6

  • AARNet runs IPv6 as a native protocol.
  • Routes are transferred using the IPv6 address family of BGP.
  • AARNet's network supports IPv6 traffic with the same performance as IPv4 traffic.

Native IPv6 multicast

  • AARNet supports native IPv6 multicast with the same performance as IPv4 multicast.

Native IPv6 address allocation

  • AARNet has a block of IPv6 address space for allocation to customers.
  • Send your request to the AARNet Network Operations Centre. 
  • Please include an addressing plan which shows 90% utilisation of the requested address space within one year of allocation.

IPv6 tunnels

Network abuse traffic

  • IPv6 traffic to or from undefined addresses is discarded.
