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

   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.


   Responsible AD is Jari Arkko and the document shepherd is
   Jonne Soininen.
