I’m AS7849 and I have an IP problem.
I’m running IPv4 ( /16 legacy + /20) and have enough space to last me for a while, multi-homed, BGP4 full tables + peering, ect.
I have some new shiny Juniper MX480s (RE-S-2X00x6, 64MB RAM) in my core.
I want to start building my IPv6 infrastructure.
I have a /32 assigned from ARIN (2001:4918::/32)
I’m looking for some direction/reading list of how to properly configure IPv6. I’ve read to use a /64 for PtP interfaces and I’ve read use a /128 instead. Assign all loopbacks from the same /64, use a different /64 for each loopback. Ect, ect.
I’m trying not to light a religious war but what is the current best practice for IPv6 deployment in a service provider network?
PS. I’ll be at NANOG69 in DC next month, 1st NANOG for me after 22 years. ☺
