3GPP mobile cellular networks such as Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS), and Long Term Evolution (LTE) have architectural support for IPv6 [RFC6459], but only 3GPP Release-10 and onwards of the 3GPP specification [TS.23401] supports DHCPv6 Prefix Delegation [RFC3633] for delegating IPv6 prefixes to a single LAN link.
