An IPv6 data plane for service aware access networks

Abstract
PPP-based architectures, today enabling residential Internet access over DSL/ATM aggregation networks, cannot meet expected future access network requirements. Using PPP tunnels, there is no possibility to achieve service differentiation- and hence, application-based QoS-within the access network, indispensable for the future deployment of triple play services. Furthermore, PPP hampers CPE autoconfiguration and limits overall scalability, due to the single edge device performing resource-intensive PPP termination. Deploying an Ethernet access and aggregation network can overcome these drawbacks to a certain extent, by providing a connectionless alternative for the current ATM technology. However, in terms of scalability and network deployment flexibility, it makes sense to inject IP awareness in the access nodes. Following the general trend of decentralization, access nodes could offload resource intensive tasks from edge nodes. Additionally, new-possibly personalized-services requiring substantial processing power can be implemented in the access, thereby generating new revenue streams or optimizing the use of available resources in the network. Given the requirements in terms of QoS, autoconfiguration, addressing and routing imposed by the proposed architecture, an ideal opportunity arises to take advantage of the new features of IPv4's successor: IPv6, having the advantageous side-effect of re-introducing true end-to-end IP connectivity, enabling the development of new communication services.
