IPv6: MAGPI can provide native IPv6 connectivity to subscribers. MAGPI routes IPv6 inside it's own network and peers natively with Internet2's IPv6 service and thus to the rest of the global IPv6 network. Customers requesting IPv6 service may additionally request a /48 sized IPv6 address block, which will be assigned out of MAGPI's /40 provider-allocated block. Customers with provider independent IPv6 allocations or assignments may use it to peer with MAGPI. Note: MAGPI does not provide tunnelled IPv6 connectivity to subscribers. Subscriber's who wish to obtain IPv6 connectivity are required to have a border router capable of routing IPv6 natively.
Dynamic Circuit Network: MAGPI is currently in the process of enabling connections to the Internet2 Dynamic Circuit Network (DCN), an on-demand, dynamically configurable optical circuit network for research applications. Potential customers of this service are advised to get in touch with the MAGPI Network Operations Center.
IP Multicast: MAGPI provides native multicast peering using the following protocols: MSDP (Multicast Source Discovery Protocol), MBGP (Multi-protocol BGP) and PIM-SM v2 (Protocol Independent Multicast - Sparse Mode, version 2). MAGPI currently has native multicast peering with the Abilene/Internet2 backbone network and several MAGPI member institutions. Note: MAGPI does not provide a PIM-SM Rendezvous Point. Customers should configure a Rendezvous Point within their network. Additionally, customers should configure filters on their edge routers for the administratively scoped multicast range (239/8) and PIM BSR (Bootstrap Router) messages.
DNSSEC: MAGPI has operated DNS zones signed with DNSSEC (DNS Security Extensions) since 2006.
Customers obtaining IPv4 or IPv6 address allocations from MAGPI, and who wish to use DNSSEC to secure the relevant reverse DNS zones, may obtain a secure delegation from MAGPI.
If your organization is inerested in any of these services, please contact the MAGPI NOC at 215.746.2474.
