Pro use ?
« on: September 07, 2010, 05:37:59 AM »

Hi,

I am working for a hosting company, and my current task is to plan a deployment of IPv6. Currently, none of our operators are offering IPv6, however the possibility to create a tunnel exist.

The he tunnel broker is free right ? We have an IPv4 bandwidth use around 1Gbps, so if you consider around 1% of IPv6 enabled hosts, that makes 100Mbps, is it all right to use the tunnel broker ? What about service waranties ? Is there a more suitable paid tunnel ?

Thanks

Yep.

None exist..this is after all, a free service.

If you use HE as your ISP, you would have native IPv6 access without a tunnel.  I imagine you could arrange a SLA at that point with them.

The broker is free.

100mb of 1000mb is 10%, fyi. Shouldn't be a problem for you to push either 1% or 10%, however remember we service more than just you on the tunnel-server, and you have the IPv4 overhead to consider into throughput when tunneling.

No SLA with free service.

E-mail sales@he.net to find out what paid services we offer.

Well, I was thinking 10Mbps, sorry for the mistake.

Anyway, thanks for the answers  ;)
