Abstract

As Enterprises and Service Providers upgrade their brown field or green field MPLS/SR core to an IPv6 transport, Multiprotocol BGP (MP- BGP)now plays an important role in the transition of their Provider (P) core network as well as Provider Edge (PE) Inter-AS peering network from IPv4 to IPv6. Operators must have flexiblity to continue to support IPv4 customers when both the Core and Edge networks migrate to IPv6. As well as must be able to support IPv6 networks in cases where operators decide to remain on an IPv4 network or during transition. This document details the External BGP (eBGP) PE-PE Inter-AS and PE- CE Edge peering IPv4-Only PE design where both IPv4 and IPv6 all supported SAFI NLRI can be advertised over a single IPv4 peer and IPv6-Only PE Design where all supported SAFI NLRI can be advertised over a single IPv6 peer. This document also defines a new IPv4 BGP next hop encoding standard that uses an IPv4 address as the next hop and not an IPv4 mapped IPv6 address. This document also provides vendor specific test cases for the IPv4-Only peering design and IPv6-Only PE design as well as test results for the five major vendors stakeholders in the routing and switching indusrty, Cisco, Juniper, Arista, Nokia and Huawei. With the test results provided for the IPv6-Only Edge peering design, the goal is that all other vendors around the world that have not been tested will begin to adopt and implement the design.
