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 a heartbeat mechanism between the MAG and the LMA to detect failures quickly and take appropriate action.
