The key objective of this project is clearly the investigation of the influence of an introduction of the new Internet Protocol IPv6 on today's satellite communication.
One of the key issues of this project is certainly the identification of several satellite specific link layer, network layer, transport layer, and management protocol issues for IPv6.
The following are the expected main benefits of this project:
There is no single architecture specified or used within this project. Instead for different satellite architectures transition scenarios for the introduction of IPv6 are investigated. Furthermore architectures are specified for the different demonstration scenarios.
The following tasks are performed in this project:
The project is completed. The main achievements of the project are:
