DHCPv6 will not be available until (guess mode on) about 2015. The internal architecture
of our network does not currently permit native IPv6. That is why we use 6rd to deploy
IPv6. However, 6rd is a very scalable and easy-to-deploy technology, that can also be used
independently by wholesale ISP partners. I know of one small ISP that uses 6rd today. So
for native IPv6, the choice is today limited to PPP, Ethernet/DHCP must use 6rd (6rd may
also be used with PPP, that's how we do it).
If you're interested in 6rd, you'll have to figure out how to configure the CPEs
with the required parameters. We use TR-69, as we already have such a device management
system in place. Another option is static configuration or the use of a DHCP (v4) option.
That DHCP option is not currently supported by our DHCP servers, but you were to ask for
such a feature, that should be easy to add.
And yes, I'm aware of that small non-german speaking part of Switzerland ;-), I lived
and studied in Lausanne for 5 years… But as this is just a small-scale pilot, we cannot go
through the efforts to translate everything. Service launch is imminent, and that will be
available in all languages of course.

This is good, and as ISP we are also curious to see when DHCPv6 will
be available on BBCS with our own prefixes. Do you know what is the
road-map for this?
Small remark, the portal below with the survey is only in German.
There is also a part of the population that speaks French and Italian
in Switzerland ...
Following up on my presentation on Swisscom's IPv6 plans, I can finally
announce that we are ready for a public pilot of IPv6 on DSL for residential
Internet access (formerly known as "bluewin"). The swinog community is
happily invited, should there be Swisscom customers amongst them :-)
Please note that you'll need a router of the latest generation ("centro
grande" or "centro piccolo") to participate -- the ones with the rounded
casing without external WLAN antenna.
You can register for the pilot at http://ipv6test.questionpro.com
then upgrade your DSL router to the IPv6-capable firmware. After the
firmware upgrade, you may enable (and disable) IPv6 on the customer web
