Hi Matt,

I can’t comment on whether they are merged at all, but I can tell you that you can run PPPoE and IPoE on the same CVC. In fact, with the right configuration, you can accept PPPoE and IPoE on the one AVC. It has questionable value, but it certainly is possible.

Subject: [AusNOG] TPG and iiNet networks merged?

Hi All,

I've seen various conflicting postings on this and thought I'd ask the question.

Are TPG retail and iiNet still running separate networks or have they now merged in to one?

As far as I can tell the big differences between the two is that iiNet still peers on the various peering exchanges and uses IPoE on NBN whereas TPG doesn't peer (outside of PIPE) and uses PPPoE for NBN auth.

Given the different NBN auth mechanisms would they be running separates CVCs to NBNco?

Just wondering if anyone with knowledge knows if they are truly technically separate networks or if they are just two brands now running on the same network?
