This paper proposes a new personal IPv6 address scheme and universal Consumer Identity Module (CIM) card for future ubiquitous consumer wireless world (UCWW) established on the Consumer-based Business Model (CBM). The new person-centric, network-independent, IPv6 address class will enable real consumer number ownership and full anytime-anywhere-anyhow portability for future generations of mobile users empowered to opt out of their long-term subscriptions with access network providers (ANPs), and use advertised communication services from any consumer-centric wireless access network present to them. The new proposed universal CIM card will enable users to use their personal IPv6 number with whatever terminal they choose thus facilitating advanced user mobility.
