Abstract

Multicast saves processing resources at the sender, network bandwidth and enables data to be transferred more quickly. IPv6 adds a unique and much larger than IP address space, provides security, more efficient routing, support for mobile and an increased number of multicast addresses. This paper describes a set of tests accomplished at the IPv6 production network inside the Information Technology Development Institute (ITDI) of the Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) and the deployment of a test-bed to the purpose to simulate the flow of multicast packets along the backbone from the upstream provider GEANT2. The link of LITNET to the world- wide IPv6 multicast test network M6Bone is eventually reported.
