Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6), specified in [RFC5213], provides network- based mobility management to hosts connecting to a PMIPv6 domain. PMIPv6 introduces two new functional entities, the Local Mobility Anchor (LMA) and the Mobile Access Gateway (MAG). The MAG is the entity detecting the Mobile Node's (MN's) attachment and providing IP connectivity. The LMA is the entity assigning one or more Home Network Prefixes (HNPs) to the MN and is the topological anchor for all traffic belonging to the MN.

          Proxy Mobile IPv6 Extensions to Support Flow Mobility


   Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) allows a mobile node to connect to the    same PMIPv6 domain through different interfaces.  This document    describes extensions to the PMIPv6 protocol that are required to    support network-based flow mobility over multiple physical    interfaces.

   This document updates RFC 5213.  The extensions described in this    document consist of the operations performed by the local mobility    anchor and the mobile access gateway to manage the prefixes assigned    to the different interfaces of the mobile node, as well as how the    forwarding policies are handled by the network to ensure consistent    flow mobility management.
