Hi all,

The interest in Mobile IP research has "matured" over the last few
years, and it is now time to move on. Keeping this in mind and in
consultation with the IRTF chair, we have decided to declare victory and
close the research group.

We have had a great run! We have published the following 5 RFCs
including the first ever IRTF stream RFC.

RFC 4651 A Taxonomy and Analysis of Enhancements to MIPv6 Route
RFC 5184 L2 Abstractions for L3 Driven Fast Handover
RFC 5726 Mobile IPv6 Location Privacy Solutions
RFC 5757 Multicast Mobility in MIPv6: Problem Statement
RFC 6252 A Framework of Media-Independent Pre-Authentication

In addition, we have contributed to bootstrapping numerous new topics
which have been transferred over to IETF working groups for standardization.

We would like to thank everyone who has participated and contributed in
these efforts over the years. We would love to hear from you if you have
any ideas regarding further research in Internet Mobility.

Thank you,
Suresh and Rajeev
