Re: 8 downstream 8 upstream modem?
said by JigglyWiggly:Huh? every IP is subnetted. Or did you mean NAT'd?
why do you guys even care about ipv6?
only asian countries need to worry about being subnetted
Either way do you realize that Comcast alone ran out of private IP space it uses for modem and cable box management years ago? It's pushing for IPv6 usage quicker than most (especially internally) just for that reason. They had to start using public IPv4 address space just for CPE management.
Besides that IPsec, QoS, and Multicast support is mandatory in IPv6 products, so end to end (across the internet, not just within a providers network) IPsec, QoS, and Multicast usage becomes much more feasible and common.
If it's important, back it up... twice. Even 99.999% availability isn't enough sometimes.
