Use of the words "specialized routing protocol" in the PS draft

Alex Petrescu:

There are two instances of the use of "specialized routing protocol" in this document:

1) In the revised definition of Access Network in Section 1.1

Access Network (revised) An Access Network consists of following three components: wireless or other access points, access routers, access network gateways which form the boundary to other networks and

substitute "the Internet" for "other networks"

may shield [the Internet] from the specialized routing protocols (if any) run in the Access Network;

substitute "(e.g. GTP, Cellular IP, HAWAII)" for "(if any)"

2) In paragraph 1 of Section 2:

The aggregation routers function as an access network gateway, although in this case, there is no specialized routing protocol and

insert "(e.g. GTP, Cellular IP, HAWAII)"

the routers function as a standard IP routed network .

insert "(e.g. OSPF, RIP)"

This use is intended to indicate that the network under discussion is a standard IP network and does not use one of the aformentioned specialized routing protocols.


In this way I can understand that the local mobility management problem deals with local IP networks consisting of multiple IP subnets, where a IGP routing protocol (e.g. OSPF, RIPng); GTP, CIP, HAWAII are not run in this local IP network.

James Kempf:

I think we are in agreement, except I may add "etc." where OSPF and RIP are mentioned, since many (in fact I think most) ISPs use ISIS instead of OSPF.
