Fwd: CERN pTLA request

CERN (the European nuclear research facility based in Geneva, Switzerland)
has requested a pTLA. The closing date for the comment period will be 15
December (just after the IETF meetings). PLease send comments to me or the
CERN is an end-site with unusual circumstances as its users are scattered
around the globe, and they have many special circuits reaching to unusual
places. For example, they run a circuit all the way to the Chicago NAP to
peer with various folk. Thus they are similar to large corporate intranets
such as Cisco, etc.
In my opinion this is a reasonable request that will help further IPv6.

> 1. The pTLA Applicant must have a minimum of three (3) months
> qualifying experience as a 6Bone end-site or pNLA transit. During
> the entire qualifying period the Applicant must be operationally
> providing the following:
> a. Fully maintained, up to date, 6Bone Registry entries for their
> ipv6-site inet6num, mntner, and person objects, including each
> tunnel that the Applicant has.
>I am in the process of getting this done, not sure if it will work!
> b. Fully maintained, and reliable, BGP4+ peering and connectivity
> between the Applicant's boundary router and the appropriate
> connection point into the 6Bone. This router must be IPv6
> pingable. This criteria is judged by members of the 6Bone
> Operations Group at the time of the Applicant's pTLA request.
>We are part of the QTPv6 experiment and are connected to 6TAP:

> d. A fully maintained, and reliable, IPv6-accessible system
> providing, at a mimimum, one or more web pages, describing the
> Applicant's IPv6 services. This server must be IPv6 pingable.
> 2. The pTLA Applicant MUST have the ability and intent to provide
> "production-quality" 6Bone backbone service. Applicants must
> provide a statement and information in support of this claim.
> This MUST include the following:
> a. A support staff of two persons minimum, three preferable, with
> person attributes registered for each in the ipv6-site object
> for the pTLA applicant.
>The composition of the support staff shall be retrievable from the 6bone
>data base, which I hope will be complete presently.
> b. A common mailbox for support contact purposes that all support
> staff have acess to, pointed to with a notify attribute in the
> ipv6-site object for the pTLA Applicant.
>Mailbox will be: [email protected]
> 3. The pTLA Applicant MUST have a potential "user community" that
> would be served by its becoming a pTLA, e.g., the Applicant is a
> major provider of Internet service in a region, country, or focus
> of interest. Applicant must provide a statement and information in
> support this claim.
>CERN has collaborations with many laboratories and universities in the
>world. With the advent of LHC (regional computing centres, GRID), we need
>efficient high bandwidth connections all over the world.
> 4. The pTLA Applicant MUST commit to abide by the current 6Bone
> operational rules and policies as they exist at time of its
> application, and agree to abide by future 6Bone backbone
> operational rules and policies as they evolve by consensus of the
> 6Bone backbone and user community.
>We do agree.
