Embedding certain semantics into IPv6 addresses will bring a lot of benifits for operators to simplify network management and apply operations accordingly[I-D.jiang-semantic-prefix]. This memo illustrates the use case of semantic bits from operator's point of view, and provides considerations on how to design the semantic bits in IPv6 address.
