A Unified CPE for Multiple Mainstream IPv4/IPv6 Transition Mechanisms
Abstract— While IPv4 and IPv6 coexists in the current Internet, there are multiple transition
mechanisms that provide IPv4 connectivity to or across IPv6 networks, and these mechanisms each
usually requires its own specific Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) to function. In this article,
we propose a specification whereby a single unified CPE can support multiple mainstream
transition mechanisms, including Mapping of Address and Port (MAP-T, MAP-E), 464XLAT,
Dual-Stack Lite (DS-Lite), and dual-stack. The unified CPE detects network configurations, and
automatically adapts its functionalities.
Index Terms— IPv4/IPv6 transition, network architecture, next-generation Internet.
