         Mobility Capability Negotiation and Protocol Selection
                          draft-yan-dmm-man-01

Abstract

   Based on IPv6, multiple mobility management protocols have been
   developed and generally they can be classified into two types:
   network-based and host-based.  Different protocols have different
   functional requirements on the network element or the terminal and
   then a scheme should be used in order to support the negotiation and
   selection of adopted mobility management protocol when a terminal
   accesses to a new network.  In this draft, this issue is considered
   and analyzed.

1.  Introduction

   Based on Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) [RFC6275], there are multiple extension
   protocols have been standardized.  These protocols can be classified
   into two categories: protocols for the function extension and
   protocols for the performance enhancement.  The protocols for the
   function extension are proposed to support some specific scenarios or
   functions, such as Dual-stack Mobile IPv6 (DSMIPv6) [RFC5555] for
   mobility of the dual-stack nodes, Multiple Care-of-address (MCoA)
   [RFC5648] for mobile nodes with multiple access interfaces and
   Network Mobility (NEMO) [RFC3963] for mobility of sub-network.  The
   other category is proposed to enhance the performance of the mobility
   management, such as Fast Mobile IPv6 (FMIP6) [RFC5268] for fast
   handover, Hierarchical Mobile IPv6 (HMIPv6) [RFC5380] for
   hierarchical mobility optimization.  MIPv6 and these extensions are
   classified in the host-based mobility management protocol suite
   because the location update is initiated by the terminal and the
   tunnel is also terminated at the terminal.

   In order to reduce the protocol cost and enhance the handover
   performance further, the network-based mobility management protocols
   were proposed and Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) [RFC5213] was
   standardized as a basis.  Based on PMIPv6, a series of its extensions
