Europe: 6Power -- IPv6, QoS & Power Line Integration

The 6Power project is a European initiative to integrate BPL (broadband over power line) technology with higher level Internet protocols and initiatives so as to facilitate widespread deployment of BPL in Europe. Here's what their web site says:

"The main goal of the 6Power project is to contribute to ensuring affordable broadband access and the deployment of IPv6 in Europe, as stated in the conclusion of the Presidency from the Barcelona European Summit ... In order to achieve this goal, the project will research the native support and deployment of IPv6, QoS and other advanced services over Power Line Communication networks, following a specific work plan."

6Power is partially funded by the European Community and is partnered with various organizations in Europe.

6Power's web site has extensive links to their own activities and BPL news.
