S. Gundavelli: AUTHOR [+5]
With the ubiquitous availability of wireless networks based on different access technology types, mobile devices are now equipped with multiple wireless interfaces and have the ability to connect to the network using any of those interfaces. For example, most mobile devices are equipped with Wi-Fi and LTE (Long Term Evolution) interfaces. In many deployments, it is desirable for a mobile node to leverage all the available network interfaces and have IP mobility support for its IP flows.

Flow-Binding Support for Mobile IP
This specification defines extensions to the Mobile IP protocol for allowing a mobile node with multiple interfaces to register a care-of address for each of its network interfaces and to simultaneously establish multiple IP tunnels with its home agent. This essentially allows the mobile node to utilize all the available network interfaces and build a higher aggregated logical pipe with its home agent for its home address traffic. Furthermore, these extensions also allow the mobile node and the home agent to negotiate IP traffic flow policies for binding individual flows with the registered care- of addresses.
