This document describes an architecture (464XLAT) for providing IPv4 connectivity across an IPv6-only network by combining existing and well-known stateful protocol translation RFC 6146 and stateless protocol translation RFC 6145. 464XLAT is a simple and scalable technique to quickly deploy IPv4 access service to mobile and wireline IPv6-only networks without encapsulation.
