             Asymmetric Extended Route Optimization (AERO)
                  draft-templin-intarea-6706bis-15.txt

Abstract

   This document specifies the operation of IP over tunnel virtual links
   using Asymmetric Extended Route Optimization (AERO).  AERO interfaces
   use an IPv6 link-local address format that supports operation of the
   IPv6 Neighbor Discovery (ND) protocol and links ND to IP forwarding.
   Prefix delegation services are employed for network admission and to
   manage the routing system.  Multilink operation, mobility management,
   quality of service (QoS) signaling and route optimization are
   naturally supported through dynamic neighbor cache updates.  Standard
   IP multicasting services are also supported.  AERO is a widely-
   applicable tunneling solution especially well-suited to aviation
   services, mobile Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and many other
   applications.
