Stern Vint Cerf blasts techies for lackluster worldwide IPv6 adoption


Re: There Might Be An Alternative

The SPR under EzIP scheme is a simple router. It does not use NAT. So, the SPR is transparent in both directions. It does have NAT (or, CGN) function for transitional purpose because legacy IoTs need it, This is for backward compatibility.

Let's focus on what we set out to do 30 years ago. As you said, do not sugar coat the IPv6 with secondary features while the main solution even does not follow the basic engineering discipline. Remember the starting point for IPv6 was to solve the IPv4 address shortage issue. Why didn't we work out a straightforward upgrade procedure for such basic function, but now relying on a lot of "features" as selling points for IPv6?

Again, please be specific about what you see in the EzIP description as issues. Thanks.
