Deploying IPv6 in 3GPP Networks - EvolvingMobile Broadband from 2G to LTE and Beyond
A practical guide enabling mobile operators to deploy IPv6with confidence
The most widely used cellular mobile broadband networktechnology is based on the 3GPP standards. The history andbackground of the 3GPP technology is in the Global Mobile Service(GSM) technology and the work done in European TelecommunicationsStandards Institute (ETSI). This primary voice service network hasevolved to be the dominant mobile Internet access technology.
Deploying IPv6 in 3GPP Networks covers how InternetProtocol version 6 (IPv6) is currently defined in the industrystandards for cellular mobile broadband, why and how this route wastaken in the technology, and what is the current reality of thedeployment. Furthermore, it offers the authors' views on howsome possible IPv6 related advances 3GPP networks may be improvedduring the coming years. It gives guidance how to implement anddeploy IPv6 correctly in the Third Generation Partnership Project(3GPP) mobile broadband environment, and what issues one may facewhen doing so. The book covers 3GPP technologies from 2G to LTE,and offers some ideas for thefuture.
