This document discusses how to best deploy the current IP mobility protocols in distributed mobility management (DMM) scenarios and analyzes the gaps of such best current practices against the DMM requirements. These best current practices are achieved by redistributing the existing MIPv6 and PMIPv6 functions in the DMM scenarios. The analyses is also applied to the real world deployment of IP mobility in WiFi network and in cellular network.
