Technical Summary This document describes the NEMO Basic Support protocol that enables mobile networks to attach to different points in the Internet. The protocol is an extension of Mobile IPv6 and allows for session continuity for every node in the mobile network as the network moves. It also allows every node in the mobile network to be reachable while moving around. The Mobile Router, which connects the network to the Internet, runs the NEMO Basic Support protocol with its Home Agent. The protocol is designed in such a way that network mobility is transparent to the nodes inside the mobile network. Working Group Summary This document is the output of the NEMO WG. This document was reviewed by many members of the WG, and there is consensus to advance the draft. There are IPR claims regarding this technology from Cisco and Nokia. The WG is aware of those claims and made a consensus decision to continue work in spite of those claims. Protocol Quality This draft was reviewed for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman.
