As the deployment of third and fourth generation cellular networks
progresses, a large number of cellular hosts are being connected to
the Internet.  Standardization organizations have made the Internet
Protocol version 6 (IPv6) mandatory in their specifications.
However, the concept of IPv6 covers many aspects and numerous
specifications.  In addition, the characteristics of cellular links
in terms of bandwidth, cost, and delay put special requirements on
how IPv6 is used.  This document considers IPv6 for cellular hosts
that attach to the General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), Universal
Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS), or Evolved Packet System
(EPS) networks (hereafter collectively referred to as Third
Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) networks).  This document also
lists specific IPv6 functionalities that need to be implemented in
addition to what is already prescribed in the IPv6 Node Requirements
document (RFC 6434).  It also discusses some issues related to the
use of these components when operating in these networks.  This
document obsoletes RFC 3316.

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