Technical Summary
 This document provides detailed description of IPv6 deployment and
 integration methods and scenarios in today's Service Provider (SP)
 Broadband (BB) networks in coexistence with deployed IPv4 services.
 Cable/HFC, BB Ethernet, xDSL and WLAN are the main BB technologies
 that are currently deployed, and discussed in this document.  The
 emerging Broadband Power Line Communications (PLC/BPL) access
 technology is also discussed for completeness.  In this document we
 will discuss main components of IPv6 BB networks and their
 differences from IPv4 BB networks and how IPv6 is deployed and
 integrated in each of these BB technologies using tunneling
 mechanisms and native IPv6.

Working Group Summary
