           Bulk Binding Update Support for Proxy Mobile IPv6

Abstract

   For extending the lifetime of a mobility session, the Proxy Mobile
   IPv6 specification requires the mobile access gateway to send a Proxy
   Binding Update message to the local mobility anchor on a per-session
   basis.  In the absence of signaling semantics for performing
   operations with group-specific scope, this results in a significant
   amount of signaling traffic on a periodic basis between a given
   mobile access gateway and a local mobility anchor.  This document
   defines optimizations to the binding update and revocation operations
   in Proxy Mobile IPv6 for performing operations with group-specific
   scope with the use of a group identifier.
