      Access Network Identifier (ANI) Option for Proxy Mobile IPv6
             draft-ietf-netext-access-network-option-08.txt

Abstract

   The local mobility anchor in a Proxy Mobile IPv6 domain is able to
   provide access network and access operator specific handling or
   policing of the mobile node traffic using information about the
   access network to which the mobile node is attached.  This
   specification defines a mechanism and a related mobility option for
   carrying the access network identifier and the access operator
   identification information from the mobile access gateway to the
   local mobility anchor over Proxy Mobile IPv6.

1.  Introduction

   Proxy mobile IPv6 [RFC5213] can be used for supporting network-based
   mobility management in various type of network deployments.  The
   network architectures, such as Service provider Wi-Fi access
   aggregation or, WLAN integrated mobile packet core are examples where
   Proxy Mobile IPv6 is a component of the overall architecture.  Some
   of these architectures require the ability of the local mobility
   anchor (LMA) [RFC5213] to provide differentiated services and
