In the scope of the Eurov6 project, Ericsson and TeliaSonera have successfully demonstrated IPv6 services over a commercial GPRS network in an international roaming scenario.

The demonstration shows that IPv6 services can be supported in a commercial mobile infrastructure, even when roaming, using automated IP tunneling. This can be seen as a stepping-stone toward native IPv6 networks and services including peer-to-peer applications.

An IPv6-enabled laptop with a Sony Ericsson GPRS PCMCIA was used to set up a connection through a commercial GPRS network in Belgium to the home network at TeliaSonera in Sweden. The laptop client automatically set up an IPv6-in-IPv4 tunnel using Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol (ISATAP) to TeliaSonera's IPv6 test mobile network, where IPv6 application servers are located and connectivity to the IPv6 Internet is provided.
