         Application-aware IPv6 Networking (APN6) Encapsulation
                draft-li-6man-app-aware-ipv6-network-02

Abstract

   Application-aware IPv6 Networking (APN6) framework makes use of IPv6
   encapsulation in order to convey the application-aware information
   along with the data packet to the network so to facilitate the
   service deployment and SLA guarantee.

   This document defines the encodings of the application characteristic
   information, for the APN6 framework, that can be exchanged between an
   application and the network infrastructure through the use of IPv6
   extension headers.
