Abstract [en]

The tremendous growth of the Internet over the past decade, as well as its continuing high growth rate, is starting to push the current Internet Protocol, IPv4, towards its limits. Where IPv4 is becoming insufficient are limited address space, security, and QoS. Considering these facts, a new protocol (IPv6), that will eventually replace current IPv4, has been designed and work is going on for its promotion and deployment. The introduction of 3G (3rd Generation) Mobile Networks is expected to be first significant commercial deployment of IPv6. The decision has been made within 3GPP to adopt and implement IPv6 as the transport protocol for 3G Mobile Networks. This has been suggested as a possible force that will speed up large scale IPv6 deployment encompassing all the Internet.

This thesis examines how far IPv6 implementation has come and if IPv6 is mature enough for large-scale deployments. The focus is on to understand the structure of protocol and to give a picture of how well its implementations work in real environments. Implementations so far are surveyed and selected parts of these implementations were tested in a lab environment. Parts that were tested were selected according to their importance for 3G Mobile Networks, e.g. parts of the protocol directly affecting Mobile IPv6, such as neighbor discovery, address autoconfiguration, etc.
