This document discusses how Large Access Providers (LAP) could use IPv6 to solve current technical challenges. In particular, IPv6’s large address space and optional header mechanism can be used to provide scalable and manageable broadband Internet access and Virtual Private Network (VPN) services. A new optional header to support forwarding-plane based VPNs is proposed.
