Abstract

This document contains recommendations from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) IPv6 Working Group to the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) community regarding the use of IPv6 in the 3GPP standards. Specifically, this document recommends that the 3GPP specify that multiple prefixes may be assigned to each primary PDP context, require that a given prefix must not be assigned to more than one primary PDP context, and allow 3GPP nodes to use multiple identifiers within those prefixes, including randomly generated identifiers.

Abstract

   This document contains recommendations from the Internet Engineering

   Task Force (IETF) IPv6 Working Group to the Third Generation

   Partnership Project (3GPP) community regarding the use of IPv6 in the

   3GPP standards.  Specifically, this document recommends that the 3GPP

   specify that multiple prefixes may be assigned to each primary PDP

   context, require that a given prefix must not be assigned to more

   than one primary PDP context, and allow 3GPP nodes to use multiple

   identifiers within those prefixes, including randomly generated

   identifiers.

   The IPv6 Working Group supports the use of IPv6 within 3GPP and

   offers these recommendations in a spirit of open cooperation between

   the IPv6 Working Group and the 3GPP community.  Since the original

   publication of this document as an Internet-Draft, the 3GPP has

   adopted the primary recommendations of this document.
