EE, the mobile network of BT, enabled IPv6 for many EE consumer customers on Pay Monthly contracts in H2 2016. The cellular network provides the eligible IPv6 smartphone with only an IPv6 address. Access to IPv4 content and services is available through a technology known as 464xlat (RFC6877). This session will cover how the mobile network (APN) has been enabled for IPv6 and how 464xlat ensures a seamless internet experience on an IPv6-only mobile network.

  • The mobile architecture challenges for dualstack
  • Ensuring customer experience with IPv6-only and 464xlat (RFC6877)
  • Look forward
