The present document presents the engineering and operational requirements for the application of the IPv6 transition technology MAP-E as defined by ETSI TS 101 569-1 (IPv6 Transition Requirements)  implemented within an integrated broadband cable network end to end across its network domains.
The present document is part 4 of a multi-part series and presents the operational aspects of the IPv6 transition technology MAP-E across the cable network domains.
Only those elements of the network that have to be engineered to operate the IPv6 transition technology MAP-E are presented. Descriptions and interface details of network elements that do not change are already addressed by the relevant equipment cable standards and therefore this information is not included in the present document.
The conformity of the MAP-E implementation is relevant when assessing its implementation and operational requirements across the cable network to ensure the implementation is correctly engineered to conform to the requirements of the base standard ETSI TS 101 569-1 . These conformance tests are not specified in the present document as they are already specified by ETSI TS 103 239 parts 1  to 3 .
The operational aspects for the IPv6 transition technology MAP-E are considered when engineered end to end across the cable network domains:
• CPE Home Networking Domain.
• Access Network Domain.
• Core Network Domain.
• Data Centre Domain.
• DMZ Service Domain.
• Transit and Peering Domain.
• Management and Monitoring Domain.
• Security Domain.
The present document specifies the requirements to be considered when the defined IPv6 transition technology MAP-E is engineered across the cable network domains.
