Abstract
In recent times, the imminent lack of public IPv4 addresses has attracted the attention of both the research community and the industry. The problem becomes even more pressing with the introduction of third generation (3G) cellular networks which are predicted to introduce hundred of millions of new IP capable terminals over the next few years. The cellular industry has decided to combat this problem by using IPv6 for the new terminals, but unfortunately since the vast majority of services will reside in the IPv4 address space the problem will remain for the foreseeable future. There have been many proposals on how to address the issue by extending the IPv4 address space so that the introduction of IPv6 is given more time for a smooth... (More)
In recent times, the imminent lack of public IPv4 addresses has attracted the attention of both the research community and the industry. The problem becomes even more pressing with the introduction of third generation (3G) cellular networks which are predicted to introduce hundred of millions of new IP capable terminals over the next few years. The cellular industry has decided to combat this problem by using IPv6 for the new terminals, but unfortunately since the vast majority of services will reside in the IPv4 address space the problem will remain for the foreseeable future. There have been many proposals on how to address the issue by extending the IPv4 address space so that the introduction of IPv6 is given more time for a smooth transition. One of these proposals, REBEKAH-IP is promising in that it is scalable and does not limit the services that can be supported. However, the scheme is limited in that there is a possibility for call blocking as the system gets loaded. In this paper, we introduce an improvement to REBEKAH-IP in which this side effect is removed, creating a robust and fully scalable system. (Less)
