Abstract— Computers and other communication devices at home connect to Internet through the Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) using addresses called IP address. The implementation of IPv6 addressing format needs to be taken into account so as to solve the depletion of IPv4 addresses. This research is aimed to demonstrate a CPE model that can be applied on IPv6 in the technical maturity of an end-to-end high bit rate fixed access network. It is mainly implemented in order to consider the features and protocols embedded in the CPE to make it smoothly adaptable on IPv6. The features of IPv6 autoconfiguration and DHCPv6 client are operated by the CPE to obtain an IPv6 address and a prefix. They can be further used to provide addresses for the terminals within the CPE to make communication to the outside of the network or Internet. In addition, the SIP client feature is installed on CPE since it is required by a VoIP phone client so as to exchange information to others. In case of the communication and terminals within the CPE that still perform IPv4 addresses the CGN DS Lite approach is activated. We demonstrated that the communication supported by CPE could only be provided on the same addressing format. IPv4 devices connect only to other IPv4 devices since IPv4 and IPv6 implement different methods on their addressing format.
