Abstract

This document describes different scenarios in Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) defined packet network, i.e., General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) that would need IP version 6 and IP version 4 transition. The focus of this document is on the scenarios where the User Equipment (UE) connects to nodes in other networks, e.g., in the Internet. GPRS network internal transition scenarios, i.e., between different GPRS elements in the network, are out of scope. The purpose of the document is to list the scenarios for further discussion and study.

RFC 3574         Transition Scenarios for 3GPP Networks      August 2003

1.  Introduction

   This document describes the transition scenarios in 3GPP packet data

   networks that might come up in the deployment phase of IPv6.  The

   main purpose of this document is to identify and to document those

   scenarios for further discussion and study them in the v6ops work...
