Technical Summary

In this document, some enhancements to the base solution described in RFC 6224 are described.  
These enhancements include the use of a multicast tree mobility anchor as the topological 
anchor point for multicast traffic, as well as a direct routing option where the Mobility 
Access Gateway can provide access to multicast content in the local network.  
These enhancements provide benefits such as reducing multicast traffic replication 
and supporting different PMIPv6 deployment scenarios.
