Sprint IPv6 Services
Sprint Nextel (Sprint) has led efforts to standardize, test, and deploy Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) since 1997. As an early adopter of IPv6 in an experimental capacity, Sprint builds upon knowledge gained through operating an IPv6 test-bed and encourages standardization and evolution of the IPv6 protocol. Sprint networks and services migrate to IPv6 not only to support wireless, wireline, and converged IP architecture objectives, but also to provide IPv6 services to customers and enable federal agencies to comply with IPv6 mandates. Dedicated IP services continue to be available from Sprint to assist with IPv6 testing and evaluation. Dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 MPLS VPN services offer network-based IP VPN support for customers interested in deploying an IPv6-capable backbone.
