Proxy Mobile IPv6

This RFC 5213 was published in 2008.


Network-based mobility management enables IP mobility for a host without requiring its participation in any mobility-related signaling.
The network is responsible for managing IP mobility on behalf of the host.
The mobility entities in the network are responsible for tracking the movements of the host and initiating the required mobility signaling on its behalf.
This specification describes a network-based mobility management protocol and is referred to as Proxy Mobile IPv6.

RFC 5213 introduction

IP mobility for IPv6 hosts is specified in Mobile IPv6 [RFC3775].
Mobile IPv6 requires client functionality in the IPv6 stack of a mobile node.
Exchange of signaling messages between the mobile node and home agent enables the creation and maintenance of a binding between the mobile node's home address and its care-of address.
Mobility as specified in [RFC3775] requires the IP host to send IP mobility management signaling messages to the home agent, which is located in the network.
