NAROS : Host-Centric IPv6 Multihoming with Traffic

Sun, 04/01/2007 - 01:54 by Damien Leroy


More and more ISPs are multihomed and need to engineer their
interdomain traffic. Unfortunately, both multihoming and traffic
engineering contribute to the growth of the BGP routing tables. For
IPv6, a better solution for multihoming and traffic engineering is
required. This document proposes a host-centric IPv6 multihoming
solution that relies on the utilization of a "Name, Address and ROute
System" (NAROS) server. A key advantage of using this server is that
it allows a multihomed site to engineer its interdomain traffic
without transmitting any BGP message.
