Ethernet VLANs are quite commonly used in enterprise networks for the
purposes of traffic segregation.  This document describes how such
VLANs can be readily used to deploy IPv6 networking in an enterprise,
which focuses on the scenario of early deployment prior to
availability of IPv6-capable switch-router equipment.  In this
method, IPv6 may be routed in parallel with the existing IPv4 in the
enterprise and delivered at Layer 2 via VLAN technology.  The IPv6
connectivity to the enterprise may or may not enter the site via the
same physical link.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the IPv6 Operations
Working Group of the IETF.
