Technical Summary:

   Access Network Identifier (ANI) Mobility option was introduced in
   Access Network Identifier Option for Proxy Mobile IPv6 (RFC 6757).
   This enables a Mobility Access Gateway (MAG) to convey identifiers
   like network identifier, geolocation, and operator identifier.  This
   specification extends the Access Network Identifier mobility option
   with sub options to carry civic location and MAG group Identifier.
   This specification also defines an ANI Update-Timer sub option that
   determines when and how often the ANI option will be updated.

Working Group Summary:

The WG initially considered updating RFC 6757 (Access Network
Identifier (ANI) Option for Proxy Mobile IPv6). However after
considering the scope and the extensions being proposed, it was
decided that a separate I-D extending RFC 6757 was a better approach.
Consensus was strong to create a new WG I-D and extend RFC6757.

Document Quality:

At the present time, there are no known implementations.  At least one
vendor has expressed plans to implement this specification.
