End-site Routing Support for IPv6 Multihoming
MetadataShow full item record
Multihoming is currently widely used to provide fault tolerance and trafﬁc engineering capabilities. It is expected that, as telecommunication costs decrease, its adoption will become more and more prevalent. Current multihoming support is not designed to scale up to the expected number of multihomed sites, so alternative solutions are required, especially for IPv6. In order to preserve interdomain routing scalability, the new multihoming solution has to be compatible with Provider Aggregatable addressing. However, such addressing scheme imposes the conﬁguration of multiple preﬁxes in multihomed sites, which in turn causes several operational difﬁculties within those sites that may even result in communication failures when all the ISPs are working properly. In this paper we propose the adoption of Source Address Dependent routing within the multihomed site to overcome the identiﬁed difﬁculties.
