In some environments where a mobile client joins a network via simple DHCP process and/or IPv6 Router Advertisement, the serving network may want to know the mobile client's mobile subscription information. This is particularly useful when a mobile client switches to a private Wi-Fi network such as home network which uses simple SSID/ Pre-Shared-Key combination. The network can use the mobile subscription information to identify the client's serving mobile network and provide service continuity.
