                         draft-tang-ipv4plus-01

Abstract

    This document specifies version 4+ of the Internet Protocol
    (IPv4+). IPv4 is very successful,simple and elegant.
    continuation and expansion of the IPv4 is necessary. Existing
    systems, devices only need to upgrade the software to support
    IPv4+, without the need to update new hardwares,saving
    investment costs. Ipv4+ is also an interstellar Protocol,
    so the Internet will evolve into a star Internet.

1. Introduction

    IPv4+ is an extended version of IPv4, 100% compatible with IPv4.
    IPv4+ expands the IPv4 IP addresses from 32-bit to 48-bit(v1)
    and 64-bit(v2), the investment in IPv4(softwares, hardwares,
    etc) is preserved. Everything you need to know is that IPv4+
    added one "Door" for IPv4, and increase IP addresses via
    the "Door".

1.1. What is IPv4+

     IPv4+ ="Door"+IPv4

1.2. What Is "Door"

    Just like "calling codes", the role of "Door" is to expand IPv4
    addresses. There is a standard IPv4 address block(2^32) behind
    every "Door". Opening different "Door", you can go to
    another world.

1.3. Addressing

    IPv4+(v1) uses 48-bit addresses, which limits the address space to
    281 474 976 710 656 (2^48) addresses, in other words, 
    IPv4+(v1) has 65536(2^16) doors.
    IPv4+(v2) uses 64-bit addresses(2^64).
    IPv4+(v2) is still under study.

1.4. "Door Address"

    Each "Door" has a number, this number is called "Door Address".
