The ARPA internet protocol suite -- commonly referred to as TCP/IP (after the core protocols, Transmission Control Protocol [1] and Internet Protocol [2]) -- is arguably the most widely used, wide area internetworking solution in the world today. Availability of on-line documentation, multiple vendor-interoperable implementations, and an internationally connected private and commercial infrastructure have most recently contributed to remarkable growth in the size of the global IP-based Internet. Deployment of IP-based networks and hosts cannot continue at the present pace unless certain addressing, protocol and operational limitations are corrected. Two problems of immediate concern are: (1) the Internet backbone and regional networks suffer from the need to maintain large and growing amounts of routing information;and (2) the Internet is gradually running out of IP network numbers to assign.
