 An Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) Profile for 3GPP Mobile Devices
               draft-ietf-v6ops-mobile-device-profile-21

Abstract

   This document defines a profile that is a superset of that of the
   connection to IPv6 cellular networks defined in the IPv6 for Third
   Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Cellular Hosts document.  This
   document defines an IPv6 profile that a number of operators recommend
   in order to connect 3GPP mobile devices to an IPv6-only or dual-stack
   wireless network (including 3GPP cellular network) with a special
   focus on IPv4 service continuity features.

   Both hosts and devices with capability to share their WAN (Wide Area
   Network) connectivity are in scope.

1.  Introduction

   IPv6 deployment in 3GPP mobile networks is the only perennial
   solution to the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses in those networks.
   Several mobile operators have already deployed IPv6 [RFC2460] or are
   in the pre-deployment phase.  One of the major hurdles as perceived
   by some mobile operators is the availability of non-broken IPv6
   implementation in mobile devices (e.g., Section 3.3 of [OECD]).
