    Overview of IPv6 and the Broadband Gateway

    The Juniper Networks MobileNext Broadband Gateway, as a Packet Data Network Gateway (P-GW) or gateway GSN (GGSN), supports IPv6 as well as IPv4. However, there are some aspects of the IPv6 support that should be detailed.

    When it comes to IPv6 support, in the current release, the MobileNext Broadband Gateway:

    • Supports the allocation of IPv6 addresses to the mobile device.
    • Does not support the use of an IPv6 network to connect the MobileNext Broadband Gateway to a Serving Gateway (S-GW) in a 4G/LTE or 3G architecture.

    Note: This means that the GGSN or P-GW uses IPv4 addresses as internal or loopback addresses.
