Abstract

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

1.  Introduction

   This document provide Multiple Ethernet - IPv6 address mapping
   encapsulation - Prefix Resolution (ME6E-PR) specification.

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

   ME6E-PR can use on both own routing domain and non own routing
   domain, i.e. can or cannot advertise routes to the network.

2.  Basic Network Configuration

   Figure 1 shows network configuration with ME6E-PR.  The network
   consists of three parts, backbone network, nodes (host or router),
   and ME6E-PR.

   Backbone network can be operated with dual stack or IPv6 only.  Node
   may physical node or virtual node, and have Ethernet Interface.

   ME6E-PR connects IPv6 network and nodes.  ME6E-PR connect to node
   with Ethernet (Layer2), and ME6E-PR connect to IPv6 network with IPv6
   (Layer3).
