                Routing and Addressing in Networks with
             Global Enterprise Recursion (RANGER) Scenarios

Abstract

   "Routing and Addressing in Networks with Global Enterprise Recursion
   (RANGER)" (RFC 5720) provides an architectural framework for scalable
   routing and addressing.  It provides an incrementally deployable
   approach for scalability, provider independence, mobility,
   multihoming, traffic engineering, and security.  This document
   describes a series of use cases in order to showcase the
   architectural capabilities.  It further shows how the RANGER
   architecture restores the network-within-network principles
   originally intended for the sustained growth of the Internet.
