With this BCP Internet-Draft we hope to draw some attention to good practises which can be applied by IP networks or IXPs to mitigate negative impact caused by maintenance operations on lower layer networks.

IPv6 is starting to become more commonly supplied by major ISPs in the UK and has been well supported for a long time by mobile phones and desktop operating systems. The percentage of data being transported over IPv6 (compared to IPv4) is expected to go up enormously in 2017 within the UK. However many embedded, niche and hobby devices are a long way from supporting IPv6. Because IPv6 addresses ... More
