This document specifies operations to allow inclusion of data along with a mobility header (from Mobile IPv6) containing a Binding Update or Binding Acknowledgement message. In this way, smoother handovers and reduced jitter and bandwidth utilization can be achieved. Interactions with IPsec-based verification of mobility messages are described; basically, establishment of such IPsec-based methods preclude the use of the mobility header specified in this document, unless simple modifications to IPsec (outside the scope of this document) can be utilized.
