The number of mobile users and their traffic demand is expected to be
ever-increasing in future years, and this growth can represent a
limitation for deploying current mobility management schemes that are
intrinsically centralized, e.g., Mobile IPv6 and Proxy Mobile IPv6.
For this reason it has been waved a need for distributed and dynamic
mobility management approaches, with the objective of reducing
operators' burdens, evolving to a cheaper and more efficient
This draft describes multiple solutions for network-based distributed
mobility management inspired by the well known Proxy Mobile IPv6.
