Operators worldwide are in various stages of preparing for or
deploying IPv6 in their networks.  These operators often face
difficult challenges related to IPv6 introduction, along with those
related to IPv4 run-out.  Operators will need to meet the
simultaneous needs of IPv6 connectivity and continue support for IPv4
connectivity for legacy devices with a stagnant supply of IPv4
addresses.  The IPv6 transition will take most networks from an IPv4-
only environment to an IPv6-dominant environment with long transition
periods varying by operator.  This document helps provide a framework
for wireline providers who are faced with the challenges of
introducing IPv6 along with meeting the legacy needs of IPv4
connectivity, utilizing well-defined and commercially available IPv6
transition technologies.  This document is not an Internet Standards 
Track specification; it is published for informational purposes.

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