IPv6 is very different from IPv4.

In IPv6, there should be a /64 assigned to the point to point link over which a  /48 should be delegated to the customer.

If the customer doesn't have a router and is just attaching a single PC, he will not make the Prefix Delegation request and just the point-to-point /64 will be adequate.

Why would you ever assign a longer prefix?
I'm not sure what you mean by "link-id", so I'm not sure what you are attempting to resolve here.

It probably can't. Why do you need to?

There are multiple ways to structure this.

If you put all of the customers into a common NBMA network, then you can use a single /64 prefix to number all of the link addresses from a given BAS to the customer sites. All of the CPE routers will use the same address on the BAS as their default gateway.

If you put the customers into individual VLANs, then each VLAN should have a /64 prefix assigned to it.

Beyond that, if the customer has a router, you should plan on having a /48 delegated prefix for each customer.

> 5. How could delegated IPv6 prefix be used in service provider's network? is this useful in dial-up access network?

The delegated prefix isn't used in the service provider's network. It is delegated to the customer for them to number their network. It can be used by the customer regardless of attachment method, though the low speeds of dialup make a complex topology on the far side less likely.
