Technical Summary Proxy Mobile IPv6 enables IP mobility for a host without requiring its participation in any mobility related signaling. Instead, the Network is responsible for managing IP mobility on behalf of the host. Working Group Summary There is a consensus in Netlmm WG that this specification is ready to be published as a proposed standard. This protocol is expected to match the problem statement, requirements, and threats defined in RFCs 4830, 4831, and 4832. Note that earlier/other efforts in the NETLMM WG included a different design for this protocol. The current specification is based on a new direction (reuse of Mobile IPv6 protocol mechanisms) that was chosen in 2006/2007. Document Quality The document has gone through various reviews and a successful WGLC. This specification is expected to find use in 3GPP's new architecture as one of the mechanisms needed to support mobility in the so called SAE/LTE network. Personnel Responsible AD is Jari Arkko and the document shepherd is Jonne Soininen.
