The 6NET project has deployed the world's first large-scale international native IPv6 multicast network, spanning nine countries, and based on technology proposed by members of the project consortium. The use of the technology known as 'Embedded RP' offers a number of advantages over previous IPv4-based multicasting techniques, particularly with respect to scalability across multiple domains.

Multicasting is a technique which allows a single transmission to be sent to multiple hosts anywhere on the Internet, and therefore provides efficient delivery of data for high-bandwidth applications such as videoconferencing and multimedia streaming. It has traditionally been run over the Internet as a virtual network known as the Mbone, but 6NET has now demonstrated this technology on its new-generation IPv6 network.
