>Dear Bob Fink and 6Bone members,
>On behalf of NTT DoCoMo, I would like to submit our application for a pTLA.
>If allocated a pTLA we will use AS9605 in our peering relationships.
>Please find our other relevant information below.
>7. Guidelines for 6Bone pTLA sites
> The following rules apply to qualify for a 6Bone pTLA allocation. It
> should be recognized that holders of 6Bone pTLA allocations are
> expected to provide production quality backbone network services for
> the 6Bone.
> 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:
>We have been connected to the 6Bone natively from 15 August 2001 as a
>6Bone end-site, and from 29 November 2001 as a pNLA.
> 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.
>We have fully maintained, up to date, 6Bone Registry entries as follows:
>ipv6-site objects: NTT-DOCOMO
>inet6num objects: 3FFE:1802:1020::/48, 3FFE:1802:D000::/40
>mntner objects: NTT-DOCOMO-MNT
>person objects: NO4-6BONE
> 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 have fully maintained and reliable, BGP4+ peering and native IPv6
>connectivity between our boundary router, host02.ipver6.jp, and NTT-ECL,
>our connection point into the 6Bone. Our router is IPv6 pingable.
> c. Fully maintained DNS forward (AAAA) and reverse (ip6.int)
> entries for the Applicant's router(s) and at least one host
>We have fully maintained DNS forward (AAAA) and reverse (ip.int) entries
>for all our routers and hosts. Our DNS server is dns1.ipver6.jp at
>We have DNS forward and reverse entries including the following router and
>Router: host02.ipver6.jp 3ffe:1802:1020:1::1/3ffe:1802:1020:2::2
>Host: host01.ipver6.jp 3ffe:1802:1020:1::2
> 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.
>Our IPv6 pingable WWW server is www.ipver6.jp, and is accessible by both
>IPv6 and IPv4.
> 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.
>We have a common mailbox for our support staff,
> 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.
>Our common mailbox for contact purposes, [email protected],
>is pointed to with a notify attribute in the ipv6-site object NTT-DOCOMO.
> 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.
>Statement of User Community and Intent to Provide Production-Quality
>IPv6 Backbone Services:
>NTT DoCoMo is a major provider of mobile Internet services in Japan. We have
>a potential "user community" which includes over 36 million mobile cellular
>subscribers of which currently over 21 million are using our i-mode data
>service. We are currently preparing to connect our IPv6 network to NSPIXP6
>where we intend to peer with other IPv6 backbone sites in the near future.
>We are also currently building the infrastructure required to offer trial
>IPv6 services in the near future via our 2G and 3G mobile cellular networks.
>Additionally, we intend to use our pTLA to test IPv6 technologies on a
>and/or multi-organizational basis.
> 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.
