Introduction As the deployment of IEEE 802.16 access networks progresses, users will be connected to IPv6 networks. While the IEEE 802.16 standard defines the encapsulation of an IPv4/IPv6 datagram in an IEEE 802.16 MAC payload, a complete description of IPv4/IPv6 operation and deployment is not present. The IEEE 802.16 standards are limited to L1 and L2, so they may be used within any number of IP network architectures and scenarios. In this document, we will discuss main components of IPv6 IEEE 802.16 access networks and their differences from IPv4 IEEE 802.16 networks and how IPv6 is deployed and integrated in each of the IEEE 802.16 technologies. This document extends the work of [RFC4779] and follows the structure and common terminology of that document. 1.1. Terminology The IEEE 802.16 related terminologies in this document are to be interpreted as described in [I-D.ietf-16ng-ps-goals]. o Subscriber Station (SS): An end-user equipment that provides connectivity to the 802.16 networks. It can be either fixed/ nomadic or mobile equipment. In mobile environment, SS represents the Mobile Subscriber Station (MS) introduced in [IEEE802.16e]. o Base Station (BS): A generalized equipment setsset providing connectivity, management, and control between the subscriber station and the 802.16 networks. o Access Router (AR): An entity that performs an IP routing function to provide IP connectivity for subscriber station (SS or MS). o Connection Identifier (CID): A 16-bit value that identifies a connection to equivalent peers in the 802.16 MAC of the SS(MS) and BS. o Ethernet CS (Convergence Sublayer): 802.3/Ethernet CS specific part of the Packet CS defined in 802.16 STD. o IPv6 CS (Convergence Sublayer): IPv6 specific subpart of the Packet CS, Classifier 2 (Packet, IPv6) defined in 802.16 STD. 2. Deploying IPv6 in IEEE 802.16 Networks 2.1. Elements of IEEE 802.16 Networks The mechanism of transporting IP traffic over IEEE 802.16 networks[IEEE 802.16e] is outlined in [IEEE802.16]. [IEEE802.16]an air interface for fixed and mobile broadband wireless access systems. [IEEE 802.16] only specifies the convergence sublayers and the ability to transport IP over the air interface. The details of IPv6 (and IPv4) operations over IEEE 802.16 are being discussed nowdefined in the 16ng WG. The IPv6 over IPCS definition is already an approved specification [I-D.ietf-16ng-ipv6-over-ipv6cs]. IP over Ethernet CS in IEEE 802.16 is defined in [I-D.ietf-16ng-ip-over-ethernet-over-802.16]. Figure 1 illustrates the key elements of typical mobile 802.16 deployments.

Scenarios and IPv6 Deployment [IEEE802.16] specifies two modes for sharing the wireless medium: point-to-multipoint (PMP) and mesh (optional). This document only focuses on the PMP mode. Some of the factors that hinder deployment of native IPv6 core protocols are already introduced by [I-D.ietf-16ng-ps-goals]. There are two different deployment scenarios: fixed and mobile access deployment scenarios. A fixed access scenario substitutes for existing wired-based access technologies such as digital subscriber lines (xDSL) and cable networks. This fixed access scenario can provide nomadic access within the radio coverages, which is called Hot-zone model. A mobile access scenario exists for the new paradigm of transmitting voice, data and video over mobile networks. This scenario can provide high speed data rates equivalent to the wire- based Internet as well as mobility functions equivalent to cellular systems. There are the different IPv6 impacts on convergence sublayer type, link model, addressing, mobility, etc. between fixed and mobile access deployment scenarios. The details will be discussed below. The mobile access scenario can be classified into two different IPv6 link models: shared IPv6 prefix link model and point-to-point link model. 2.2.1. Mobile Access Deployment Scenarios Unlike IEEE 802.11, the IEEE 802.16 BS can provide mobility functions and fixed communications. [IEEE802.16e] has been standardized to provide mobility features on IEEE 802.16 environments. IEEE 802.16 BS might be deployed with a proprietary backend managed by an operator. Some architectural characteristics of IEEE 802.16 networks may affect the detailed operations of NDP (Neighbor Discovery Protocol) [RFC4861], [RFC4862].There are two possible IPv6 link models for mobile access deployment scenarios: shared IPv6 prefix link model and point-to-point link model [RFC4968]. There is always a default access router in the scenarios. There can exist multiple hosts behind an MS (networks behind an MS may exist). The mobile access deployment models, Mobile WiMax and WiBro, fall within this deployment model. 1.(1) Shared IPv6 Prefix Link Model This link model represents the IEEE 802.16 mobile access network deployment where a subnet consists of only single AR interfaces and multiple MSs. Therefore, all MSs and corresponding AR interfaces share the same IPv6 prefix as shown in Figure 2. The IPv6 prefix will be different from the interface of the AR. +-----+ | MS1 |<-(16)-+ +-----+ | +-----+ +-----+ +----| BS1 |--+ | MS2 |<-(16)-+ +-----+ | +-----+ | +-----+ +--------+ +->| AR |----| Edge | ISP +-----+ | +-----+ | Router +==>Network | MS3 |<-(16)-+ +-----+ | +--------+ +-----+ +----| BS2 |--+ +-----+ | +-----+ | MS4 |<-(16)-+ +-----+ Figure 2: Shared IPv6 Prefix Link Model 2.(2) Point-to-Point Link Model This link model represents IEEE 802.16 mobile access network deployments where a subnet consists of only single AR, BS and MS. That is, each connection to a mobile node is treated as a single link. Each link between the MS and the AR is allocated a separate, unique prefix or unique set of prefixes by the AR. The point-to- point link model follows the recommendations of [RFC3314]. +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ | MS1 |<-(16)------| |---->| | +-----+ | BS1 | | | +-----+ | | | | +--------+ | MS2 |<-(16)------| |---->| |----| Edge | ISP +-----+ +-----+ | | | Router +==>Network | AR | +--------+ +-----+ +-----+ | | | MS3 |<-(16)------| |---->| | +-----+ | BS2 | | | +-----+ | | | | | MS4 |<-(16)------| |---->| | +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ Figure 3: Point-to-Point Link Model 22.214.171.124. IPv6 Related Infrastructure Changes IPv6 will be deployed in this scenario by upgrading the following devices to dual-stack: MS, AR and ER. In this scenario, IEEE 802.16 BSs have only MAC and PHY layers without router functionality and operate as a bridge. The BS should support IPv6 classifiers as specified in [IEEE802.16]. However, if IPv4 stack is loaded to them for management and configuration purposes, it is expected that BS should be upgraded by implementing IPv6 stack, too.126.96.36.199. Addressing An IPv6 MS has two possible options to get an IPv6 address. These options will be equally applied to the other scenario below (Section 2.2.2). 1.(1) An IPv6 MS can get the IPv6 address from an access router using stateless auto-configuration. In this case, router discovery and DAD operation should be properly operated over an IEEE 802.16 link. 2.(2) An IPv6 MS can use DHCPv6 to get an IPv6 address from the DHCPv6 server. In this case, the DHCPv6 server would be located in the service provider core network and the AR should provide a DHCPv6 relay agent. This option is similar to what we do today in case of DHCPv4. In this scenario, a router and multiple BSs form an IPv6 subnet and a single prefix is allocated to all the attached MSs. All MSs attached to same AR can be on the same IPv6 link. As for the prefix assignment, in case of the shared IPv6 prefix link model, one or more IPv6 prefixes are assigned to the link and hence shared by all the nodes that are attached to the link. In the point- to-point link model, the AR assigns a unique prefix or a set of unique prefixes for each MS. Prefix delegation can be required if networks exist behind an MS. 188.8.131.52. IPv6 Transport In an IPv6 subnet, there are always two underlying links: one is the IEEE 802.16 wireless link between the MS and BS, and the other is a wired link between the BS and AR. If stateless auto-configuration is used to get anIPv6 address, router discovery and DAD operation shouldpackets can be properly operated over IEEE 802.16 links. In case of the shared IPv6 prefix link model, the DAD (Duplicate Address Detection) [RFC4861] does not adapt well tosent and received via the 802.16 air interface as there is no native multicast support. An optimization, called Relay DAD, may be required to perform DAD. However, in caseIP specific part of the point-to-point link model, DAD is easy since each connection to a MNpacket convergence sublayer. The Packet CS is treated as a unique IPv6 link.used for the transport of packet based protocols which include Ethernet and Internet Protocol (IPv4 and IPv6). Note that in this scenario IPv6 CS [I-D.ietf-16ng-ipv6-over-ipv6cs]may be more appropriate than Ethernet CS [I-D.ietf-16ng-ip-over- ethernet-over-802.16]to transport IPv6 packets, since there is some overhead of Ethernet CS (e.g., Ethernet header) under mobile access environments. However, when PHS (Payload Header Suppression) is deployed it mitigates this overhead through the compression of packet headers. The details of IPv6 operations over the IP specific part of the packet CS defined in [I-D.ietf-16ng-ipv6-over-ipv6cs]. Simple or complex network equipment may constitute the underlying wired network between the AR and the ER. If the IP-aware equipment between the AR and the ER does not support IPv6, the service providers can deploy IPv6-in-IPv4 tunneling mechanisms to transport IPv6 packets between the AR and the ER. The service providers are deploying tunneling mechanisms to transport IPv6 over their existing IPv4 networks as well as deploying native IPv6 where possible. Native IPv6 should be preferred over tunneling mechanisms as native IPv6 deployment options might be more scalable and provide the required service performance. Tunneling mechanisms should only be used when native IPv6 deployment is not an option. This can be equally applied to other scenarios below (Section 2.2.2). 184.108.40.206. Routing In general, the MS is configured with a default route that points to the AR. Therefore, no routing protocols are needed on the MS. The MS just sends to the AR using the default route. The AR can configure multiple links to ER for network reliability. The AR should support IPv6 routing protocols such as OSPFv3 [RFC2740] or IS-IS for IPv6 when connected to the ER with multiple links. The ER runs the IGP such as OSPFv3 or IS-IS for IPv6 in the service provider network. The routing information of the ER can be redistributed to the AR. Prefix summarization should be done at the ER. 220.127.116.11. Mobility AsThere are two types of handovers for mobility management,the movement between BSs is handled by Mobile IPv6 [RFC3775], if it requiresIEEE 802.16e networks: link layer handover and IP layer handover. In a subnet change. Also,link layer handover, BSs involved in certain cases (e.g., fast handover)the link mobility information must be available for facilitatinghandover reside in the same IP subnet. A MS only needs to re-establish a link layer 3 handoff procedure.connection with a new BS without changing its IP configuration, such as its IP address, default router, on-link prefix, etc. The link layer handover in IEEE 802.16e is by nature a hard handover since the MS has to cut off the connection with the current BS at the beginning of the handover process and cannot resume communication with the new BS until the handover completes [IEEE802.16e]. In an IP layer handover, the BSs involved reside in different IP subnets, or in different networks. Thus, in an IP layer handover, a MS needs to establish both a new link layer connection, as in a link layer handover, and a new IP configuration to maintain connectivity. IP layer handover for MSs is handled by Mobile IPv6 [RFC3775]. Mobile IPv6 defines that movement detection uses Neighbor Unreachability Detection to detect when the default router is no longer bidirectionally reachable, in which case the mobile node must discover a new default router. Periodic Router Advertisements for reachability and movement detection may be unnecessary because the IEEE 802.16 MAC provides the reachability by its Rangingranging procedure and the movement detection by the Handoff procedure. Mobile IPv6 alone will not solve the handover latency problem for the IEEE 802.16 defines L2 triggers802.16e networks. To reduce or eliminate packet loss and to reduce the handover delay in caseMobile IPv6, therefore, Fast Handover for Mobile IPv6 (FMIPv6) [RFC4068] can be deployed together with MIPv6. To perform predictive packet forwarding, the refresh of anFMIPv6's IP address is required duringlayer assumes the handoff. Though a handoff has occurred, an additional router discovery procedure is not required in casepresence of intra-subnet handoff. Also, faster handoff may occurhandover-related triggers delivered by the L2 trigger in caseIEEE 802.16 MAC layers. Thus, there is a need for cross-layering design to support proper behavior of inter-subnet handoff.the FMIPv6 solution. This issue is also being discussed in [I-D.ietf-mipshop-fh80216e]. Also, [IEEE802.16g] defines L2 triggers for link status such as link-up, link-down, handoff-start. These L2 triggers may make the Mobile IPv6 or FMIPv6 procedure more efficient and faster. In addition, Mobile IPv6 Fast Handover assumes the support from link- layer technology, but the particular link-layer information being available, as well as the timing of its availability (before, during or after a handover has occurred), differs according to the particular link-layer technology in use.2.2.2. Fixed/Nomadic Deployment Scenarios The IEEE 802.16 access networks can provide plain Ethernet end-to-end connectivity. This issue is also being discussed in [I-D.ietf-mipshop-fh80216e]. In addition, due to the problems caused by the existence of multiple convergence sublayers [RFC4840], the mobile access scenarios need solutions about how roaming will work when forced to move from one CS to another (e.g., IPv6 CS to Ethernet CS). Note that, at this phase this issue is the out of scope of this document. It should be also discussed in the 16ng WG. 2.2.2. Fixed/Nomadic Deployment Scenarios The IEEE 802.16 access networks can provide plain Ethernet end-to-end connectivity. Wireless DSL deployment modelscenario represents deployment model using Ethernet CS. Wireless DSL deployment model is an example of a fixed/nomadicfixed/ nomadic IPv6 deployment of IEEE 802.16. Many wireless Internet service providers (Wireless ISPs) have planned to use IEEE 802.16 for the purpose of high quality broadband wireless services. A company can use IEEE 802.16 to build up a mobile office. Wireless Internet spreading through a campus or a cafe can be also implemented with it. The distinct point of this use case is that it can use the unlicensed (2.4 & 5 GHz) band as well as the licensed (2.6 & 3.5GHz) band. By using the unlicensed band, an IEEE 802.16 BS might be used just as a wireless switch/hub which a user purchases to build a private wireless network in his/her home or laboratory. Under fixed access model, the IEEE 802.16 BS will be deployed using an IP backbone rather than a proprietary backend like cellular systems. Thus, many IPv6 functionalities such as [RFC4861], [RFC4862] will be preserved when adopting IPv6 to IEEE 802.16 devices.+-----+ +-----+ +-----+ ISP 1 | SS1 |<-(16)+ +->| AR1 |----| ER1 |===>Network +-----+ | | +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ | +-----+ | | SS2 |<-(16)+-----| BS1 |--| +-----+ +-----+ | +-----+ +-----+ ISP 2 +->| AR2 |----| ER2 |===>Network +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ | +-----+ +-----+ |Hosts|<-->|SS/GW|<-(16)------| BS2 |--+ +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ This network behind SS may exist Figure 4: Fixed/Nomadic Deployment Scenario This scenario also represents IEEE 802.16 network deployment where a subnet consists of multiple MSs and multiple interfaces of the multiple BSs. Multiple access routers can exist. There exist multiple hosts behind an SS (networks behind an SS may exist). When 802.16 access networks are widely deployed as in a WLAN, this case should be also considered. The Hot-zone deployment model falls within this case. While Figure 4 illustrates a generic deployment scenario, the following Figure 5 shows in more detail how an existing DSL ISP would integrate the 802.16 access network into its existing infrastructure. +-----+ +---+ +-----+ +-----+ ISP 1 | SS1 |<-(16)+ | | +-->|BRAS |----| ER1 |===>Network +-----+ | | b| | +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ | +-----+ |E r| | | SS2 |<-(16)+-----| BS1 |-----|t i| | +-----+ +-----+ |h d|--+ | g| | +-----+ +-----+ ISP 2 +-----+ +-----+ | e| +-->|BRAS |----| ER2 |===>Network | SS3 |<-(16)------| BS2 |-----| | | +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ +-----+ +---+ | | +-----+ +-----+ | | TE |<-(DSL)-----|DSLAM|------------+ +-----+ +-----+ Figure 5: Integration of 802.16 access into DSL infrastructure In this approach the 802.16 BS is acting as a DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer). On the network side, the BS is connected to an Ethernet bridge which can be separate equipment or integrated into the BRAS (Broadband Remote Access Server). 18.104.22.168. IPv6 Related Infrastructure Changes IPv6 will be deployed in this scenario by upgrading the following devices to dual-stack: MS, AR, ER, and the Ethernet Bridge. The BS should support IPv6 classifiers as specified in [IEEE802.16]. However, if a IPv4 stack is loaded to them for management and configuration purpose, it is expected that the BS should be upgraded by implementing an IPv6 stack, too.The BRAS in Figure 5 is providing the functionality of the AR. An Ethernet bridge is necessary for protecting the BRAS from 802.16 link layer peculiarities. The Ethernet bridge relays all traffic received through the BS to its network side port(s) connected to the BRAS. Any traffic received from the BRAS is relayed to the appropriate BS. Since the 802.16 MAC layer has no native support for multicast (and broadcast) in the uplink direction, the Ethernet bridge will implement multicast (and broadcast) by relaying the multicast frame received from the MS to all of its ports. The Ethernet bridge may also provide some IPv6 specific functions to increase link efficiency of the 802.16 radio link (see Section 22.214.171.124). 126.96.36.199. Addressing One or more IPv6 prefixes can be shared to all the attached MSs. Prefix delegation can be required if networks exist behind the SS. 188.8.131.52. IPv6 Transport Note that in this scenario Ethernet CS [I-D.ietf-16ng-ip-over-ethernet-over-802.16] may be more appropriate than IPv6 CS [I-D.ietf-16ng-ipv6-over-ipv6cs] to transportTransmisson of IPv6 packets, since the scenario needs to support plainover Ethernet end-to- end connectivity. However, the IPv6CS can also be supported. The MS and BS will consider the connections between the peer IP CSs at the MSfollows [RFC2464] and BSdoes not introduce any changes to form[RFC4861] and [RFC4862]. However, there are a point to point link. Infew considerations in the Ethernet CS case, an Ethernet bridge may provide implementationviewpoint of operation, such as preventing periodic router advertisement messages from an authoritative address cacheaccess router and Relay DAD. An Authoritative address cache is a mapping between the IPv6 addressbroadcast transmission, deciding path MTU size, and the MAC addresses of all attached MSs.so on. The bridge builds its authoritative address cache by parsing the IPv6 Neighbor Discovery messages used during address configuration (DAD). Relay DAD means thatdetails about the Neighbor Solicitation message usedconsiderations are described in the DAD process will be relayed only to the MS which already has configured the solicited address as its own address (if such an MS exist at all).[I-D.ietf-16ng-ip-over-ethernet-over-802.16]. 184.108.40.206. Routing In this scenario, IPv6 multi-homing considerations exist. For example, if there exist two routers to support MSs, a default router must be selected. The Edge Router runs the IGP used in the SP network such as OSPFv3 [RFC2740] or IS-IS for IPv6. The connected prefixes have to be redistributed. Prefix summarization should be done at the Edge Router. 220.127.116.11. Mobility No mobility functions of Layer 2 and Layer 3 are supported in the fixed access scenario. However, mobilityLike WLAN technology, however, nomadicity can be supported in the radio coverage without any mobility protocol like WLAN technology. Therefore,protocol. So, a user can access Internet nomadically in the coverage. 2.3. IPv6 Multicast In IEEE 802.16 air link, downlink connectionsSometime, service users can be shared among multiple MSs, enabling multicast channels with multiple MSs receiving the same information fromdemand IP session continuity or home address reusability even in the BS. Multicast and Broadcast Service (MBS)nomadic environment. In case of that, Mobile IPv6 [RFC3775] may be used to efficiently implement multicast. However, it is not clear how to do this, as currently CID is assigned by BS, butin MBS it should be done at an AR and it's network scope. It is not clear howthis mapping will happen for MBS, so MBS discussions have been postponedscenario even in WiMax for now. Note that it should be intensively researched later, since MBS will be one ofthe killer services in IEEE 802.16 networks. In order to support multicast services in IEEE 802.16,absence of Layer 2's mobility support. 2.3. IPv6 Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) [RFC2710] must be supported between the MS and AR. Also, the inter-working with IP[I-D.ietf-16ng-ip-over-ethernet-over-802.16] realizes IPv6 multicast protocols and MBS should be considered. MBS defines Multicast and Broadcast Services, but actually, MBS seems tosupport by IGMP/MLD proxying [RFC4605] and IGMP/MLD snooping [RFC4541]. Additionally, it may be a broadcast service, not multicasting. MBS adherespossible to broadcast services, while traditional IPefficiently implement multicast schemes definepacket transmission among the multicast routing using a shared tree or source-specific tree to deliver packets efficiently. Insubscribers by means of IEEE 802.16 networks, two types of access to MBS may be supported: single-BS accessMulticast CIDs. However, such a protocol is not yet available and multi-BS access. Therefore, these two types of services may be roughly mapped into Source-Specific Multicast.under development in WiMAX Forum. 2.4. IPv6 QoS In IEEE 802.16 networks, a connection is unidirectional and has a QoS specification. The 802.16 supportedEach connection is associated with a single data service flow and each service flow is associated with a set of QoS has different semantics from IPparameters in [IEEE802.16]. The QoS (e.g., diffserv). Mapping CID torelated parameters are managed using the Dynamic Service Flow IDentifier (SFID) definesAddition (DSA) and Dynamic Service Change (DSC) MAC management messages that specified in [IEEE802.16]. The [IEEE802.16] provides QoS parameters ofdifferentiation for the different types of applications by five scheduling service. Four scheduling services are defined in 802.16 such as Unsolicited Grant Service (UGS), real- time Polling Service (rtPS), non-real-time Polling Service (nrtPS) and Best Effort (BE). A fifth scheduling service flow associated withis Extended Real- time Polling Service (ertPS) that connection. In orderis defined in [IEEE802.16e]. It is required to interwork with IP QoS,provide IP QoS (e.g., diffserv, or flow label for IPv6)layer quality of service mapping to IEEE 802.16 link specifics should be provided.MAC layer QoS types [IEEE802.16], [IEEE802.16e]. 2.5. IPv6 Security When initiating the connection, an MS is authenticated by the AAA server located at its service provider network. AllTo achieve that, the parameters related to authentication (username, passwordMS and etc.) are forwarded bythe BS touse Privacy Key Management [IEEE802.16],[IEEE802.16e], while the BS communicates with the AAA server. TheAAA server authenticatesusing a AAA protocol. Once the MSs and when anMS is onceauthenticated and associatedwith the AAA server, it can associate successfully with BS, IPv6the BS and acquire an IPv6 address will be acquired by the MSthrough stateless autoconfiguration or DHCPv6. Note that the initiation and authentication process is the same as the one used in IPv4. IPsec is a fundamental part of IPv6. Unlike IPv4, IPsec for IPv6 may be used within the global end-to-end architecture. But, we do not have PKIs across organizations and IPsec is not integrated with IEEE 802.16 network mobility management. IEEE 802.16 network threats may be different from IPv6 and IPv6 transition threat models [RFC4942]. It should be also discussed.2.6. IPv6 Network Management [IEEE802.16f] includes the management information base for IEEE 802.16 networks. For IPv6 network management, the necessary instrumentation (such as MIBs, NetFlow Records, etc) should be available. Upon entering the network, an MS is assigned three management connections in each direction. These three connections reflect the three different QoS requirements used by different management levels. The first of these is the basic connection, which is used for the transfer of short, time-critical MAC management messages and radio link control (RLC) messages. The primary management connection is used to transfer longer, more delay-tolerant messages such as those used for authentication and connection setup. The secondary management connection is used for the transfer of standards-based management messages such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP), and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). IPv6 based IEEE 802.16 networks can be managed by IPv4 or IPv6 when network elements are implemented dual stack. For example, network management systems (NMS) can send SNMP messages by IPv4 with IPv6 related object identifiers. Also, an NMS can use IPv6 for SNMP requests and responses including IPv4 related OID. 3. IANA Considerations This document requests no action by IANA. 4. Security Considerations Please referThis document provides a detailed description of various IPv6 deployment scenarios and link models for IEEE 802.16 based networks, and as such does not introduce any new security threats. No matter what the scenario applied is, the networks should employ the same link-layer security mechanisms defined in [IEEE802.16e] and IPv6 transition security considerations defined in [RFC4942]. However, as already described in [RFC4968], a shared prefix model based mobile access deployment scenario may security implications for protocols that are designed to Section 2.5 "IPv6 Security" technology sectionswork within the scope. This is the concern for details.a shared prefix link model wherein private resources cannot be put onto a public 802.16 based networks. This may restrict the usage of a shared prefix model to enterprise environments. 5. Acknowledgements This work extends v6ops work on [RFC4779]. We thank all the authors of the document.
