1.  Introduction

   The [I-D.ietf-dmm-srv6-mobile-uplane] proposes SRv6 as userplane
   protocol for mobile networks.  As part of this work we have decided
   to create a series of PoCs with the objective to prove the viability
   and feasibility of such proposal.

   For this reason we have two ongoing PoCs using M-CORD C3PO and OAI,
   that are progressing towards a full implementation of the mechanisms
   described in such I-D.

   This I-D contains a formal definition of the PoCs and will summarize
   it's findings.  Anyone interested in participating in the ongoing
   PoCs or propose new ones is welcome to join us.

2.  Terminology

   This document adopts the terminology of
   [I-D.ietf-dmm-srv6-mobile-uplane].

   This document uses the terms N3, N6 and N9 interfaces, as well as UPF
   and gNB as refered to in [TS.23501].

3.  M-CORD C3PO

   M-CORD <https://www.opennetworking.org/m-cord/> is an open-source
   project from ONF focused on building a cloud-native virtualized and
   dissagregated RAN and EPC.

   As part of the M-CORD project, the C3PO component is part of the NGIC
   (Next Generation Infrastructure Core)
