This document defines extensions to the Mobile IP protocol [1] to allow mobility management for the interface between a radio network and a packet data network in the third generation cdma2000 network. Mobile IP requires link layer connectivity between the Mobile Node and the Foreign Agent. This draft proposes a protocol for achieving this when the physical layer terminating at a point distant from the FA. In particular, this protocol applies to cdma2000 networks where the physical layer terminates at a Radio Network Node (RNN) and the FA resides inside a separate Packet Data Serving Node (PDSN). The PDSN is responsible for establishing, maintaining, and terminating the link layer to the Mobile Node. A RNN is responsible for relaying the link layer protocol between a Mobile Node and its corresponding PDSN. The interface between the RNN and the PDSN is called the RP interface. This interface requires mobility management for handling handoff from one RNN to another without interrupting end to end communication. It also requires the support of the link layer protocol encapsulation.
