Technical Summary
 
 Ethernet VLANs are quite commonly used in enterprise networks for the
 purposes of traffic segregation.  This document describes how such
 VLANs can be readily used to deploy IPv6 networking in an enterprise,
 which focuses on the scenario of early deployment prior to
 availability of IPv6-capable switch-router equipment.  In this method
 IPv6 may be routed in parallel with the existing IPv4 in the
 enterprise and delivered at Layer 2 via VLAN technology.  The IPv6
 connectivity to the enterprise may or may not enter the site via the
 same physical link.
