Technical Summary This document provides a detailed description of IPv6 deployment and integration methods and scenarios in wireless broadband access networks in coexistence with deployed IPv4 services. It discusses the main components of IPv6 IEEE 802.16 access networks, their differences from IPv4 IEEE 802.16 networks, and how IPv6 is deployed and integrated in each of the IEEE 802.16 technologies. Working Group Summary The document was reviewed by participants from both the IPv6 Operations WG and the 16NG Working Group. No lingering concerns remained as it completed its review. Document Quality As described in the IPv6 Operations charter, this document's purpose was to review the issues that might arise in deploying IPv6 in an IEEE 802.16 network. The document uses "IEEE 802.16" as essentially equivalent to "Wimax", although one could argue that they differ. It builds on the structure and considerations of RFC 4779, which is a more general document looking at IPv6 deployment in broadband networks in general. It notes issues such as the fact that 802.16 QoS definitions differ from and have to be operationally mapped to IP Differentiated Services concepts, and specifically comments on the use of IPv6 Multicast, QoS, Security, and Network Management in IEEE 802.16 fixed and mobile access networks. Personnel The Document Shepherd is Fred Baker. The Responsible AD is Ron Bonica. RFC Editor Note Please add the following paragraph to the last of section 184.108.40.206. >In addition, due to the problems caused by the existence of multiple >convergence sublayers [RFC4840], the mobile access scenarios need >solutions about how roaming will work when forced to move from one CS >to another (e.g., IPv6 CS to Ethernet CS). Note that, at this phase >this issue is the out of scope of this document. In Section 2.4, please change the following text: >> It is >> required to provide IP layer quality of service mapping to MAC layer >> QoS types [IEEE802.16], [IEEE802.16e]. to the following: > It is > required to define IP layer quality of service mapping to MAC layer > QoS types [IEEE802.16], [IEEE802.16e]. Section 2.6: > > OLD TEXT: > > IPv6 based IEEE 802.16 networks can be managed by IPv4 or IPv6 when > network elements are implemented dual stack. For example, network > management systems (NMS) can send SNMP messages by IPv4 with IPv6 > related object identifiers.
