 Multiple Ethernet - IPv6 address mapping encapsulation - fixed prefix
                       draft-matsuhira-me6e-fp-04

Abstract

   This document specifies Multiple Ethernet - IPv6 address mapping
   encapsulation - fixed prefix (ME6E-FP) base specification.  ME6E-FP
   makes expantion ethernet network over IPv6 backbone network with
   encapsuation technoogy.  And also, E6ME-FP can stack multiple
   Ethernet networks.  ME6E-FP work on own routing domain.

1.  Introduction

   This document provides Multiple Ethernet - IPv6 address mapping
   encapsulation - fixed prefix (ME6E-FP) base specification.

   ME6E-FP make many virtual ethernet network over IPv6 network with
   unicast base technology.

   ME6E-FP can use on own routing domain, i.e. can advertise routes to
   the network.

2.  Basic Network Configuration

   Figure 1 shows network configuration with ME6E-FP.  The network
   consists of three parts.  IPv6 network, Nodes (Host or Router) , and
