Zafar,

We want this for planes, trains and automobiles – all of them, worldwide. And, I am
not interested in looking at alternatives when I see exactly what I want in CRH. I want
an IPv6-only solution without having to introduce an adjunct service like MPLS.

The reason compressed format is so important is that the source and destination
of IPv6 packets that include a CRH may be behind a low-end wireless link (less than
1Mbps, and shared with many other users) and every bit we can conserve in the
transmission matters. We could define our own RH like was done for RH2 and RH3,
but then it would be a solution-specific code that might not find its way into widely
deployed network equipment and would not be a standard feature of commercial
routers.

So, yes, I support CRH for good reasons.

Fred

The subject of CRH should also be new to the aviation circles.
I would highly encourage you to look into SRv6 alternatives that IETF has been working on for >6 years.
After such discussions on the requirements, if CRH turns out to be a better fit – by all means select CRH.
But please let’s avoid “putting the cart before the horse”.

IMO, SRv6 checks all the boxes.
It will be a pleasure to have such discussions (I am also available offline).

Thanks

Hi Zafar,

1) Is there any IETF requirement document for OMNI and AERO (I am sorry I am not aware of the technology but very much interested in learning)?

AERO began life in the IEFT many years ago and was progressed there up to about
three years ago when it was brought into focus in the International Civil Aviation
Organization (ICAO). Since that time, AERO development was largely driven by the
ICAO requirements, while the OMNI spec was entirely born in the ICAO community.
We now have a liaison statement asking the IETF to do work on OMNI, so the work is
now crossing back over from ICAO into the IETF again.

2) Do we have some documents describing the scale you would need?

Working papers in ICAO talk about the use case for developing an Aeronautical
Telecommunications Network with Internet Protocol Services (ATN/IPS) that will
be an IPv6-based network for worldwide air traffic management. Worldwide air
traffic management is a large-scale consideration. We have also begun to discuss
about OMNI and AERO for Intelligent Transportation Systems in the ipwave group.
Worldwide ground transportation is an even larger-scale consideration.

3) Have the associated WG analyzed existing solutions?  Have they feed the results
of the above to 6man WG?

I assume you are referring to existing SRH solutions? The subject of SRH is new
to the aviation circles, but what we need is something that is clean, compact and
pure IPv6-based with no MPLS implications. We like what we see with CRH.

Fred

All other routing header types have had requirements and designs from dedicated working groups with expertise in the area.
Why should CRH be an exception, especially when there are multiple competing solutions in 6man and Spring?

As I said, I want to use CRH for OMNI and AERO; I don't want the term "MPLS" to appear
either in my documents or in any documents mine cite. The 16-bit CRIDs in CRH are very
handy for coding ULA Subnet Router Anycast addresses such as fd80::/16, fd81::/16,
fd82::/16, etc., and the 32-bit CRIDs are very handy for coding the administrative address
suffixes of fd80::/96. So, CRH gives everything I need (and nothing I don’t need) for
successfully spanning the (potentially) multiple segments of the AERO link.

Thanks - Fred

What I find so bizarre is –

You have an multiple operators – who have clearly said – we want this – we see advantage of this.  Yet still the obstructionism and denialism continues.  The “not invented here” syndrome seems to run deep – and email after email is patently ignored from the very people who have to buy the hardware.  Reference is made to Montreal – yet the emails that stated the use cases after it went by with no response.  No technical objections ever show up – other than – we don’t want this and you haven’t given us this mythical architecture document – which was yet another non-technical response that seems so clearly designed to stall any innovation that doesn’t come from one source.

All I see from the operator perspective here is obstructionism and stalling in a desperate attempt to block anything that could be a threat to what was dreamed up by someone else.  It is almost as if there is fear that the market may choose something other than what was designed – and that fear is driving this stance of throw everything we hav against the wall and hope that something sticks – because the technical arguments have failed time and again.

This pitbull approach certainly doesn’t garner any respect for me, does not help to promote srv6 which seems to be what you want and in fact convinces me more every day that CRH is the right move – where I can built on top of it without the obstructionism of a vendor that seems to have zero interest in what mysef and other operators are clearly stating over and over again.

Yet again – I support crh – I’ve deployed CRH – CRH works for us – and we still continue to support it.  And irrespective of if it is adopted – the development of it will continue – and it will exist – the only question is – do we end up with something that the market wants outside of the auspices of the IETF – or do we end up with something that is properly standardized, because this level of obstructionism will not prevent the development.

Can we actually get back to proper technical reasoning?

Thanks

Andrew

Zafar,

Why all the passion about stopping the CRH? Does it break any existing standard? Does it consume any scarce resource?

You might argue that there is a scarcity of Routing header type numbers. But that would be a very short argument. You might argue that WG resources are scarce, and that it would take too much time to review this fourteen page document. But that argument might take more time than the document review.

In your email, below, you mention “the hardware and software investment from vendors”. Is that the scarce resource?

Vendors are not obliged to implement every draft that is adopted as a WG item. Generally, the marketplace drives product roadmaps.

If the only resource we are protecting is vendor investment, the long-standing practice of due diligence should be tempered by operator demand. The IETF should not pretend to understand operator requirements better than the operators themselves.

Why not let the marketplace decide whether it needs a CRH?

                                                                                            Ron

[External Email. Be cautious of content]

WH> My position remains that RFC8663 is a valid alternative and is available; I am against WG adoption of CRH.


The industry widely supports RFC8663.



Instead of denying the evidence, could the CRH authors and proponents finally understand that people are not opposed to new ideas?



People are reminding a long-standing practice of the IETF process. Before tackling a new piece of work, a working group must perform a due diligence on

  1.  whether this new work is redundant with respect to existing IETF protocols,
  2.  whether this new work would deliver genuine benefits and use-cases.



It is factually and logically clear to the working-group that the currently submitted CRH documents.

  1.  fail to position CRH with respect to existing standard widely supported by the industry (e.g., RFC8663)
  2.  fail to isolate new benefit or use-case [1]



This positive collaborative feedback was already given in SPRING.

The CRH authors may change this analysis. They need to document 1 and 2.



Why did the CRH authors not leverage this guidance in SPRING WG?

This was also the chair's guidance in Montreal [2] and Singapore [3]



All the lengthy discussions and debates on the mailing list could be avoided if only the CRH authors would tackle 1 and 2.



The CRH authors must tackle 1 and 2.



  *   This is the best way to justify a/the work from the IETF community and b/ the hardware and software investment from vendors.
  *   True benefits must be present to justify such a significant engineering investment (new data-pane, new control-plane).



Thanks
