The increasing interest in Internet Protocol TeleVision (IPTV) and Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) has driven the need to find a solution to run IPTV and IPv6 outside of a normal public access network. To find new solutions a virtual testbed based on Virtual Private Network (VPN) was built. VPN is a technology that can provide global networking and extended geographic connectivity, also with native security features and good control of the VPN clients. An experimental solution "Virtual Testbed" based on VPN technology to extend provision of IPTV and IPv6 is presented in this paper.
