   Home Agent-Assisted Route Optimization between Mobile IPv4 Networks

Abstract

   This document describes a home agent-assisted route optimization    functionality for the IPv4 Network Mobility Protocol.  The function    is designed to facilitate optimal routing in cases where all nodes    are connected to a single home agent; thus, the use case is route    optimization within a single organization or similar entity.  The    functionality enables the discovery of eligible peer nodes (based on    information received from the home agent) and their network prefixes,    and the establishment of a direct tunnel between such nodes.
