This document defines new Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
(DHCPv4 and DHCPv6) options that contain a list of IP addresses and
a list of domain names that can be mapped to servers providing IEEE
802.21 type of Mobility Service (MoS) (see RFC 5677).  These Mobility
Services are used to assist a mobile node (MN) in handover
preparation (network discovery) and handover decision (network
selection).  The services addressed in this document are the Media
Independent Handover Services defined in IEEE 802.21.  

This document is a product of the Mobility for IP: Performance, Signaling and Handoff Optimization Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
