             Asymmetric Extended Route Optimization (AERO)
                  draft-templin-intarea-6706bis-03.txt

Abstract

   This document specifies the operation of IP over tunnel virtual links
   using Asymmetric Extended Route Optimization (AERO).  Nodes attached
   to AERO links can exchange packets via trusted intermediate routers
   that provide forwarding services to reach off-link destinations and
   route optimization services for improved performance.  AERO provides
   an IPv6 link-local address format that supports operation of the IPv6
   Neighbor Discovery (ND) protocol and links ND to IP forwarding.
   Dynamic link selection, mobility management, quality of service (QoS)
   signaling and route optimization are naturally supported through
   dynamic neighbor cache updates, while IPv6 Prefix Delegation (PD) is
   supported by network services such as the Dynamic Host Configuration
   Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6).  AERO is a widely-applicable tunneling
   solution especially well-suited to aviation services, mobile Virtual
   Private Networks (VPNs) and other applications as described in this
   document.
