Paper: IPv6 Operation for WAVE – Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments

The IEEE WAVE protocol suite is providing commu- nications services to applications in vehicular networks, by way of promising support for two protocol stacks: the Wave Short Message Protocol (WSMP) and IPv6. While WSMP is developed within the IEEE 1609 family of standards, the authors of this paper assert, that considerations for IPv6 operation for WAVE are less developed, and several issues are left unaddressed by the current IEEE 1609 specifications. This paper reviews these issues and analyzes the main challenges in providing proper IPv6 operation for WAVE networks.
