Requirements for IPv6 Customer Edge Routers to Support IPv4 Connectivity
                              as-a-Service
                 draft-ietf-v6ops-transition-ipv4aas-05

Abstract

   This document specifies the IPv4 service continuity requirements for
   an IPv6 Customer Edge (CE) router, either provided by the service
   provider or thru the retail market.

   Specifically, this document extends the "Basic Requirements for IPv6
   Customer Edge Routers" in order to allow the provisioning of IPv6
   transition services for the support of "IPv4 as-a-Service" (IPv4aaS)
   by means of new transition mechanisms.  The document only covers
   transition technologies for delivering IPv4 in IPv6-only access
   networks, commonly called "IPv4 as-a-Service" (IPv4aaS), as required
   in a world where IPv4 addresses are no longer available, so hosts in
   the customer LANs with IPv4-only or IPv6-only applications or
   devices, requiring to communicate with IPv4-only services at the
   Internet, are still able to do so.
