This document specifies a new LMA Redirect mechanism, where an initially contacted LMA can let the MAG know that it needs to connect to an alternate LMA to get mobility services, either for overload prevention and/or load balancing purposes. This document proposes a new error code for the proxy binding acknowledgement message and a new mobility option to be carried on the binding acknowledgement message for this purpose.
