The Internet is continually required to support more users, more internetwork connections, and increasing complexity due to diverse policy requirements. This growth and change strains the infrastructure and demands new solutions. Some of the complementary approaches to transform Internet technology are being pursued concurrently within the IETF: translation (including Network Address Translation (NAT)), tunneling (map and encapsulate), and native IPv6 [RFC2460] deployment. Routing and Addressing in Networks with Global Enterprise Recursion (RANGER) [RFC5720] describes the architectural elements of a "map and encapsulate" approach that also facilitates the other two approaches. This document discusses RANGER operational scenarios.

                 Routing and Addressing in Networks with              Global Enterprise Recursion (RANGER) Scenarios


   "Routing and Addressing in Networks with Global Enterprise Recursion    (RANGER)" (RFC 5720) provides an architectural framework for scalable    routing and addressing.  It provides an incrementally deployable    approach for scalability, provider independence, mobility,    multihoming, traffic engineering, and security.  This document    describes a series of use cases in order to showcase the    architectural capabilities.  It further shows how the RANGER    architecture restores the network-within-network principles    originally intended for the sustained growth of the Internet.
