Technical Summary Mobile Internet access from smartphones and other mobile devices is accelerating the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses. IPv6 is widely seen as crucial for the continued operation and growth of the Internet, and in particular, it is critical in mobile networks. This document discusses the issues that arise when deploying IPv6 in mobile networks. Hence, this document can be a useful reference for service providers and network designers. Working Group Summary The IPv6 Operations Working Group discussed this document at IETF-77 and IETF-78 and in an email Working Group last Call. There were comments made, and the commentators stated that they were comfortable with the resolution in the final document. Document Quality We are starting to see operational mobile networks with the set of problems the document addresses and considering similar solutions. Comments from the working group suggested that the writeup was useful to them. Personnel Fred Baker is shepherd.
