Could you provide a list of, say, 5 CPE equipments from various
vendors in sub-100$ price range that currently provide this feature
(with v4)? That might go a long way in convincing those unbelievers
in the WG such as myself that this is a common and important feature
in this context?
Point well taken in v4, Pekka. But the Internet is changing. There
wasn't tons of encapsulation layering in the past. It's becoming more
and more relevant now, and especially in v6. I'm sitting in Softwires
WG right now. Most of this is about tunneling one IP think over
another. We're on the 5 proposal now, or so.
Conclusion: I don't think looking at what vendors have been doing for
the past 10 years is a good indicator of what is needed in the next
10 years, because the networking is dramatically changing.
Hope that helps,
