Will the 6450 support IPv6 Prefix Delegation?

IPv6 DHCP-Relay Prefix Delegation:

 

Looking through the ICX6450 documention it appears as of right now it does not, but does anyone know if this is on the roadmap?

 

Thanks!

Please contact your sales representative to find it out.

 

Can you share network topology for the application of this feature in your networks?

Re: Will the 6450 support IPv6 Prefix Delegation?

Thanks for the reponse.  I have an email in to my SE, just thought I'd try here as well!

 

We are and ISP using the 6450-C12-PD in L3 mode as a customer demarcation device.  We have a centralized DHCP cluster.  Ideally, as we're rolling out IPv6 to the customer, we'd hand them an address for the WAN link (could be DHCP or Autoconfig), then a prefix from the DHCP server to use on their LAN.  The 6450 would then snoop the prefix, and add a dynamic route to it.

 

This works on the MLX and CER, but we're trying to localize broadcast traffic, and being able to do this on the 6450 would be ideal.

 

Thanks!
