I have question about the number of MPA servers necessary in a  
interworking scenario.
If I have a scenario with 2 access networks (with different  
technologies), will need two CA, two AA and two tunneling agents and  
buffering agents if perform handover from both ways (A to B and B to  
A), right?

First, I'm trying understand why (can give some tips?);
Second, it's not possible aggregate these 2 MPA server in a single  
entity? In a intra domain scenario makes sense.

All help or support will be very helpful.
