Framework to support signalling for IPv6-based NGN
|Publication Date:||1 February 2008|
This Recommendation specifies the requirements and guidelines for supporting the existing signalling protocols and signalling for supporting several functions required in Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6)-based next generation networks (NGN) using the IPv6 features.
This Recommendation covers the following:
• Features of signalling using IPv6
• Requirements of signalling for transport/service control and interworking
• Functional architecture for signalling in IPv6-based NGN
• Signalling interworking scenarios between IPv6-based NGN and other networks
The implementation methods for the delivery of signalling messages in IPv6 are not covered by this Recommendation.
