Proxy Mobile IPv6 is a network-based mobility management protocol. The mobility entities involved in the Proxy Mobile IPv6 protocol, the Mobile Access Gateway (MAG) and the Local Mobility Anchor (LMA), setup tunnels dynamically to manage mobility for a mobile node within the Proxy Mobile IPv6 domain. This document describes an extension to the Proxy Mobile IPv6 protocol to register a data plane address, that is different from the Proxy Care-of Address with the LMA. This allows separation of control and data plane.
