This letter proposes a new fast network configuration scheme that realizes an IP interface that allows users to view Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) in IPv6 networks more quickly than is possible with the current configuration procedure. The new scheme, a hybrid combination of IPv6, address information, and non-IP information, especially the Domain Name Service, is newly designed based on a technical analysis. The evaluation results show that the proposed scheme is acceptable for real-time television watching in IPv6 networks, even when in motion.
