Nokia IPV6 over WDM
The evolution of the Internet calls for more capacity in terms of
address space and bandwidth as well as added value features for quality of service,
multicast, security and mobility. Always-on connectivity is a requirement for the future
Mobile Information Society.
The key technology to respond to the evolution needs is IPv6. Optical technologies,
seamlessly integrated with the Internet Protocol (IP) layer, will provide the increase in
bandwidth. Advanced service and network management systems will help operators to manage
these new network functions.
The Nokia IPv6 over WDM demonstration presents pilot implementations of key
- Nokia IP650 routers extended with IPv6 and DiffServ capabilities as well as 2.5 Gbps
- A WDM ring network prototype (8. 6 x 2.5 Gbps) providing interconnection between routers
with flexible protection capabilities (1+1, 1:1, IP)
- A service management system providing authentication and controlling the QoS of the IP
