This document describes an architecture (464XLAT) for providing
limited IPv4 connectivity across an IPv6-only network by combining
existing and well-known stateful protocol translation (as described
in RFC 6146) in the core and stateless protocol translation (as
described in RFC 6145) at the edge. 464XLAT is a simple and scalable
technique to quickly deploy limited IPv4 access service to IPv6-only
edge networks without encapsulation.

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