                       Experience with Testing of
         Mapping of Address and Port Using Translation (MAP-T)

Abstract

   This document describes the testing result of a network utilizing a
   Mapping of Address and Port using Translation (MAP-T) double
   translation solution; it provides an overview of user applications'
   behavior with a shared IPv4 address.

   The MAP-T software is from CERNET Center and the test environment is
   on the NIC.br network with real and virtualized machines.
