Fundamentally, Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) extends MIPv6 signaling messages between a network node and an HA. RFC 5213 describes a network-based mobility management protocol that enables IP mobility for a host without requiring its participation in any mobility-related signaling. The PMIPv6 domain includes local mobility anchors (LMA) and mobile access gateways (MAG) between which security associations can be set up for sending proxy binding updates (PBU) on behalf of the MNs. MAGs can establish settings of a transient binding on the LMA by means of signaling. The NetLMM extensions (NetExt) working group of the IETF has an objective to design a solution for localized routing in PMIPv6. During the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 communications using both protocols is expected to be enabled for some time to come over the same network infrastructure.
