[arin-ppml] ARIN-prop-133: No Volunteer Services on Behalf of Unaffiliated Address Blocks - revised

Yes -- without naming names, one of the three leading CMTS vendors has no
IPv6 support (Q3 at the earliest).

In regards to CPE, the D-Link DIR-655 with the latest firmware is pretty
IPv6 ready.  It sells for $70 at Amazon.com, probably a bit more at your
local electronics retailer.  See
http://www.getipv6.info/index.php/Broadband_CPE for more info (most don't
have an SPI firewall).

But is there any gear being sold today that doesn't support v6?  I know
two vendors that can't do dynamic routing protocols on v6 yet but their
gear is more aimed at the layer2 switching market anyway and do support
v6 switching, addressing, and static routes which probably covers the
vast majority of their use cases.  All of the stuff I have in the layer3
area of the network supports v6 and that is four different vendors.

At this stage finding vendors who don't support v6 is more difficult
than finding the ones that do.  The one problem area is xDSL CPE.
Everything else is pretty much there in one form or another and simply
takes more usage in order to shake the cobwebs out of it.
