Hi Tianran,

I did not see your argument why BIERin6 is “just a wrong solution and direction”.

Additionally, BIERin6 is existing RFC8296 solution with a new code point. Both from solution history and document timeline, BIERin6 comes *before* BIERv6 and it works with a nice clean layering. BIERv6 on the other hand has its issues (will expand on those in separate threads).

Therefore, the question should be flipped around – why BIERv6?

Hi Jeffrey,

Bierv6 is a nice design. It works very well in IPv6 scenario.
Given we already have Bierv6, I do not understand why we are still arguing the requirement for Bier in 6.
I just see no need for Bier in 6.

Cheers,
Tianran

Hi Tianran,

I had answered/countered every question/comment that Gyan/Jingrong raised, some repeatedly.


  *   Bier in 6 is just a wrong solution and direction.

Love to hear your arguments for the above.

Why do you want to stop valid comments and valid discussions?
I think both Gyan and Jingrong just raised the key technique points.
Bier in 6 is just a wrong solution and direction.

Please try to keep comments on track and in-line with the thread. Stand-alone questions like this are just digging up ground we've already sowed.

(to make clean, raise a new topic)

I am confused too by the claiming a solution can do everything and it is an "existing" solution, while requesting allocation of IPv6 Next Header / IPv4 Protocol value which is non-trivial.

We need to know, what does *the* BIERin6 draft propose, and how does *the* BIERin6 draft satisfy the bier-ipv6-requirements.
Take req-1 as an example, suppose there are PPP-over-SONET(POS, RFC2615) links in an IPv6 network, can the existing RFC8296 solve ? What does *the* BIERin6 draft propose to solve ?

Please note in my question the word *the* does not include anything that RFC8296 can solve. Any existing RFC8296 solution is not belonging to *the* BIERin6 proposal. Please tell us *the* BIERin6 proposal.

Thanks
Jingrong

Jeffrey

About the two lingering points it does shed light on something that has been disturbing me with the BIERin6 solution.


I thought about this some more and I think what creates a lot of confusion in my mind with BIERin6 solution is the L2/tunnel component.

As the main reason is that the L2/tunnel exists today with RFC 8296 “Non MPLS BIER Ethernet” with the special allocated next header code point to account for BIER next header 0xAB37.

I honestly think the L2 should be removed from the BIERin6 draft so that the optional IPV6 encapsulation is no longer “optional” in the draft as that now is the draft.

This also provides the “IPv6 encapsulation” commonality with BIERv6 at least showing clearly that their is a strive for commonality and parity between the two solutions.

Also the “muddying” of the water is eliminated by removing L2 making the solution crystal clear to operators.


Kind Regards

Gyan
