This document provides guidance on IPv6 deployment in Internet
Exchange Points (IXPs).  It includes information regarding the switch
fabric configuration, the addressing plan and general organizational
tasks that need to be performed.  IXPs are mainly a Layer 2
infrastructure, and, in many cases, the best recommendations suggest
that the IPv6 data, control, and management plane should not be
handled differently than in IPv4.  This document is not an Internet 
Standards Track specification; it is published for informational purposes.

This document is a product of the IPv6 Operations Working Group of the IETF.
