In section 3.1, "Delaying the public IPv4 address exhaustion involves
assigning private IPv4 addressing for end-users, as well as extending an
IPv4 address (with the use of extended port ranges).
do you mean using some solution like address + port
If yes, where do you think Address + Port solution should be
implemented? Maybe one of the node could be GGSN/PDN gateway, how about the
other node, is it the mobile node or the ANG?
In section 3.1
"An approach to address this problem is to make the always-on PDN to be
enable IPv4 PDN on-demand, e.g., when an application binds to an IPv4
socket interface. This ensures that an IPv4 address is not assigned
for every attached MN, but only to those attempting to use the
traffic. The IPv4 PDN may be subject to session idle timers upon the
expiry of which, the PDN (and the assigned IPv4 address) may be
deleted. Another option specified in the 3GPP standards is to defer
the allocation of IPv4 address on a dual-stack IPv4v6 PDN at the time
of connection establishment. This has the advantage of a single PDN
for IPv6 and IPv4, along with deferring IPv4 address allocation until
an application needs it"
now, and in the near future, most of the content would still be available
in IPv4 network, not sure whether this solution could save private IPv4
And this would also require some modification in the mobile devices.
We keep our promises with one another - no matter what!
