G. Giaretta: AUTHOR [+2]
Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) [RFC5213] is a network-based IP mobility protocol standardized by the IETF. In some deployment scenarios, this protocol will be deployed together with Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) [RFC6275], for example, with PMIPv6 as local mobility protocol and MIPv6 as global mobility protocol. While the usage of a local mobility protocol should not have implications on how global mobility is managed, since PMIPv6 is partially based on MIPv6 signaling and data structure, some considerations are needed to understand how the protocols interact and how the different scenarios can be enabled.

Interactions between Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) and Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6): Scenarios and Related Issues
The use of Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) and Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) in the same network requires some care. This document discusses scenarios where such mixed usage is appropriate and points out the need for interaction between the two mechanisms. Solutions and recommendations to enable these scenarios are also described.
