Abstract

Many mobile operators have deployed IPv6, or are about to, in their operational networks. A customer in such a network can be provided IPv6 connectivity if their User Equipment (UE) is IPv6 compliant. Operators may adopt various approaches to deploy IPv6 in mobile networks, such as the solutions described in [TR23.975]. Depending on network conditions, either dual-stack or IPv6-only deployment schemes can be enabled.
