a concept of IPv6 Showcase with a range of devices, network subsystems,
applications and connectivity to different user premises or demo centers.
the vendors and their products for availability and their usability in the
scenario so developed.
contacts to key marketing people through the IPv6 Task Force (European and
others), IPv6 Forum, IPv6 Cluster, different IST project partners (6LINK,
NGNLAB, 6WINIT, GEANT, 6NET, and Euro6IX, among others), the Commission
services, and any other available options that we can consider during the
a stable network and applications scenarios from the users point of view
(simplicity and straightforwardness) so that the features are visible and
not the complex networking issues.
the locations of a few permanent showrooms, where the demonstrations are
generally available round the year and special demos targeted to particular
types of visitors that can be arranged at short notice. Obvious candidates
are Brussels and Basel, which constitute the NGN-LAB infrastructure as well
as Madrid because of the involvement of CONSULINTEL in Euro6IX.
the sponsoring of connectivity, devices, systems and services, applications
from the vendors and ISPs for integrating the system.
a prototype demo system and maintain it, including packaging and
a plan to illustrate different aspects of IPv6 remotely from some networked
centers around Europe and help the local personnel of different centers to
develop their own user manuals.
to take the demo Showcase to different events (including INTEROP) and other
a living IPv6 Internet environment in such events with active participation
in these events.
appropriate information dissemination and public relations policy, as well
as relations with the press and the media, and conduct the corresponding
a project web site, which will describe the package and its availability,
list the forthcoming information dissemination events and report about the
the sponsors in the web site, in order to reward their contribution and
increase their participation.
