Technical Summary This document specifies an IPv6 profile for 3GPP mobile devices. It lists the set of features a 3GPP mobile device is to be compliant with to connect to an IPv6-only or dual-stack wireless network (including 3GPP cellular network and IEEE 802.11 network). This document defines a different profile than the one for general connection to IPv6 cellular networks defined in [I-D.ietf-v6ops-rfc3316bis]. In particular, this document identifies also features to deliver IPv4 connectivity service over an IPv6-only transport. Both hosts and devices with capability to share their WAN (Wide Area Network) connectivity are in scope. Working Group Summary IPv6 Operations contains a number of sub-communities, which include operators of various categories, vendors of various categories, academics, researchers, and others. This document, which is intended to describe a specific category of IPv6 service and serve in RFPs and RFIs as a set of operational requirements, was primarily of interest to the operators of 3GPP and related mobile networks. It was also reviewed by the Mobile Network vendors, including several of the authors of draft-ietf-v6ops-rfc3316bis, which was developed at the same time. While there were comments and improvements made on the draft, it was not particularly controversial until IETF LC. This document has at this point been thourgh two IETF and WC-LC cycles associated with concerns raised by the scope and nature of the feature enumeration in this document. The document can as related albiet not an outright companion of rfc 7066. Document Quality There were a number of thorough reviews, including reviews from operators and from vendors.
