NAROS : Host-Centric IPv6 Multihoming with Traffic Engineering

CÚdric de Launois and Olivier Bonaventure

More and more ISPs are multihomed and need to engineer their interdomain traffic. Unfortunately, both multihoming and traffic engineering contribute to the growth of the BGP routing tables. For IPv6, a better solution for multihoming and traffic engineering is required. This document proposes a host-centric IPv6 multihoming solution that relies on the utilization of a "Name, Address and ROute System" (NAROS) server. A key advantage of using this server is that it allows a multihomed site to engineer its interdomain traffic without transmitting any BGP message.
