Technical Summary This document specifies the mechanisms for transmission of IPv6 datagrams over IEEE 802.11-OCB mode. It is based on existing IPv6 over Ethernet documents and focuses on the aspects specific to IEEE 802.11-OCB mode. This document is the main charter item of the IPWAVE working group. Working Group Summary The document has been reviewed several times within the WG. It also has been reviewed by 6man (as specified in the IPWAVE WG charter). Authors have addressed the comments received and 6man has not raised additional issues. It also received several directorate reviews. Document Quality There was an implementation of this done at the IETF 104 hackathon and it was presented at the ipwave WG meeting. Personnel The document shepherd is Carlos J. Bernardos. The responsible Area Director is Suresh Krishnan.
