IPv6 deployment in 3GPP mobile networks is the only viable solution to the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses in those networks. Several mobile operators have already deployed IPv6 [RFC2460] or are in the pre-deployment phase. One of the major hurdles as perceived by some mobile operators is the lack of availability of working IPv6 implementation in mobile devices (e.g., Section 3.3 of [OECD]).

                 An IPv6 Profile for 3GPP Mobile Devices


   This document defines a profile that is a superset of the connection    to IPv6 cellular networks defined in the IPv6 for Third Generation    Partnership Project (3GPP) Cellular Hosts document.  This document    defines a profile that is a superset of the connections to IPv6    cellular networks defined in "IPv6 for Third Generation Partnership    Project (3GPP) Cellular Hosts" (RFC 7066).

   Both mobile hosts and mobile devices with the capability to share    their 3GPP mobile connectivity are in scope.
