                Multiple Care-of Addresses Registration

Abstract

   According to the current Mobile IPv6 specification, a mobile node may
   have several care-of addresses but only one, called the primary
   care-of address, can be registered with its home agent and the
   correspondent nodes.  However, for matters of cost, bandwidth, delay,
   etc, it is useful for the mobile node to get Internet access through
   multiple accesses simultaneously, in which case the mobile node would
   be configured with multiple active IPv6 care-of addresses.  This
   document proposes extensions to the Mobile IPv6 protocol to register
   and use multiple care-of addresses.  The extensions proposed in this
   document can be used by mobile routers using the NEMO (Network
   Mobility) Basic Support protocol as well.
