IPv6 in WiMAX Networks - Challenges for Broadband Wireless

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Broadband wireless access is one of the ways to enable widespread broadband Internet access in India. Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is a proven technology choice for providing broadband wireless access. An Indian operator offering broadband in India today, by default, uses an IPv4 network. However, country-wide wireless broadband (several thousands of homes, and millions of mobile users) requires an addressing capacity that cannot be met by IPv4 addressing. This paper presents a review of the challenges in using IPv6 in a WiMAX network, and discusses focus areas for deployments and standards.
