Router Advertisement / Router Solicitation is one of the ways for hosts to establish network IPv6 connectivity configuration. This document describes two approches to allowing a router to specify mobility service type availability to mobile hosts. Mobile hosts can then configure their IP address to the preferred type of mobile connectivity. Two possibilities are considered: (i) creating an extension to the router advertisement prefix information option to allow the router to specify mobility connectivity types, and (ii) specifying a new RA options that allows the router to specify the mobility connectivity types.
