Exploiting Local IPv4-only Access Networks to Deliver IPv6 Service to End-users
This paper introduces a new IPv6 deployment protocol called E4Deliver6, which stands for Exploiting Local IPv4- only Access Networks to Deliver IPv6 Service to End-users. The protocol intends to help the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to rapidly start providing IPv6 service to the end-users. E4Deliver6 tunnels the IPv6 traffic into IPv4 traffic to transit the IPv4-only access network infrastructure. The new protocol offers IPv6 service alongside IPv4 service to the end-users, economical solution, and requires simple and automatic configurations at both end-users' hosts and ISP sides at the time of setup. E4Deliver6 connected hosts will be able to communicate with other IPv6-only servers outside their local IPv4-only access network.
