The use of IP (Internet protocol) technology in the information and communications industry constitutes a major global trend. A highly efficient service architecture, enabling technologies and advanced applications are essential to rapid multimedia services in an all-IPv6 network environment. This work presents an all-IPv6 service platform based on open service architecture (OSA) to support a set of standard interfaces and applications. The all-IPv6 network environment was integrated using a network-processor-based IPv4/IPv6 translator and a mobile router (MR) supported IPv6 network mobility. The feasibility of the open service platform for all-IPv6 network environments and of the designed application programming interfaces was examined using three applications: e-commerce, video-on-demand, and on-line gaming. The performance analysis indicates that the system throughput increased from 10.5 to 60.5 Mb/s as the number of users increased from 1 to 80; the mean response time increased from approximately 1 to 10.5 ms, and the delay time increased from 0.1 to 1 ms.
