This document explains how to interconnect IPv6 islands over an IPv4 cloud, including the exchange of IPv6 reachability information using BGP. Two approaches will be explained, both requiring a Dual Stack MP-BGP-speaking edge router per IPv6 island. The hosts in the IPv6 islands can use native IPv6 addresses.
