              Mapping Quality of Service (QoS) Procedures
                 of Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) and WLAN

Abstract

   This document provides guidelines for achieving end-to-end Quality of
   Service (QoS) in a Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) domain where the access
   network is based on IEEE 802.11.  RFC 7222 describes QoS negotiation
   between a Mobile Access Gateway (MAG) and Local Mobility Anchor (LMA)
   in a PMIPv6 mobility domain.  The negotiated QoS parameters can be
   used for QoS policing and marking of packets to enforce QoS
   differentiation on the path between the MAG and LMA.  IEEE 802.11 and
   Wi-Fi Multimedia - Admission Control (WMM-AC) describe methods for
   QoS negotiation between a Wi-Fi Station (MN in PMIPv6 terminology)
   and an Access Point.  This document provides a mapping between the
   above two sets of QoS procedures and the associated QoS parameters.
   This document is intended to be used as a companion document to RFC
   7222 to enable implementation of end-to-end QoS.
