           Basic Requirements for IPv6 Customer Edge Routers
                    draft-palet-v6ops-rfc7084-bis-01

Abstract

   This document specifies requirements for an IPv6 Customer Edge (CE)
   router.  Specifically, the current version of this document focuses
   on the basic provisioning of an IPv6 CE router and the provisioning
   of IPv6 hosts attached to it.  The document also covers several
   transition technologies, 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 able to do so.  The document
   obsoletes RFC 7084.

1.  Introduction

   This document defines basic IPv6 features for a residential or small-
   office router, referred to as an "IPv6 CE router", in order to
   establish an industry baseline for features to be implemented on such
   a router.

   These routers typically also support IPv4, at least in the LAN side.
