OIT enabled IPv6 within Northern Lights GigaPOP in early 2003 via Internet2.
OIT has been testing IPv6 in the lab and on a limited number of subnets on and off since 2003.
IPv6 support was a requirement of the design and the selection of hardware for Gopher GigaNet in 2004.
OIT has provided Native IPv6 connectivity for IETF and other technical meetings held in Minneapolis.
OIT did an IPv6 trial with TW Telecom the 4th quarter of 2008 through the 2nd quarter 2009.
Northern Lights GigaPOP now uses TW Telecom as a production commercial IPv6 ISP.
IPv6 has been enabled for Authoritative DNS.
IPv6 has been enabled on the entire Twin Cities campus backbone.
IPv6 is available across most of the campus via “eduroam” wireless SSID.
IPv6 subnets are available to the community and we will begin distributing IPv6, along with IPv4 for any new subnet request on December 30, 2011.
