I think the newer Huawei CPE can (not the 658 )

> Does anyone know of a commercially available CPE router that supports 464XLAT (i.e. the 464CLAT part)? From what I have found only openwrt seems to support it. This is surprising given that the technology has been around for a long time - T Mobile in the US have used it to allow their network to become IPv6 only over 4 years ago. There is a reasonably mature open source implementation of it etc etc.

The great thing about 464XLAT over (say) DSLite is that you can remove IPv4 completely from the core network and you end up with just one IPv4 nat between the customers home device (XBox etc) and the internet - which most applications can handle OK.
> I remember David Woolley from Telstra gave an interesting talk at the last AusNOG meetup (2018) where they had implemented 464XLAT with great success for their 4G failover. I am not sure what manufacturer they used - Sagemcom? - I think they had to get them to produce a special build. Is there a copy of his presentation anywhere?
