Technical Summary

   The document describes a mechanism to provide fast handovers when
   Proxy Mobile IPv6 is used as the mobility management protocol. It
   also describes a mechanism to transfer context between two MAGs
   to assist in the handover. The mobile node is not involved in any
   Signaling for the fast handovers to work.

Working Group Summary

   This is a product of the MIPSHOP WG.

Document Quality

   There are no known implementations of the specification. It is likely
   to be implemented by some vendors, since this document is required 
   for fast handovers in 3GPP2 eHPRD network.
