subtitle: The PIB connects locations and offices
## The professional IPv6 router
Like the [VIIRB](../viirb-ipv6-box), the **PIB** is designed to
provide IPv6 connectivity for you. The PIB
## How it works
The PIB is pre-configured with a Wireguard VPN. With this VPN you
will receive a /48 IPv6 prefix. The IPv6 connectivity is provided by
[Data Center Light](../projects/data-center-light/).
When you plug in the ethernet cable and power it on, it will do the
* Establish a VPN connection via IPv4 or IPv6 to Data Center Light
* Announce a pre-configured /64 network on the LAN
* Announce a pre-configured /64 network on the Wifi (optional)
By default the firewall is configured to allow outgoing connections
from LAN/Wifi towards the VPN. Incoming ICMP6, SSH, HTTP and HTTPS is
open by default.
## PIB use cases
The configuration and uses cases are the same as the
[VIIRB](../viirb-ipv6-box). Additionally the PIB is suited for bigger
scale operations with 3 gigabit ports.
