Title : IPNGLS - IP Next Generation Label Switching
Author(s) : V. Roesler et al.

This document proposes the forwarding of IPv6 packets using label
switching techniques, with the same advantages of the Multiprotocol
Label Switching (MPLS) architecture. The document proposes the
mapping of all MPLS header fields into the IPv6 header, raising
several advantages like the simplicity of the model, the decrease of
overhead, and others. This mapping was called IP Next Generation
Label Switching, or just IPngLS, and can work concurrently with
MPLS, i.e. IPv6 packets are forwarded with IPngLS and IPv4 packets
are forwarded with MPLS.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
