Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) is a network based mobility management
protocol that enables IP mobility for a host without requiring its
participation in any mobility-related signaling.  PMIPv6 requires all
communications to go through the local mobility anchor.  As this can
be suboptimal, Localized Routing (LR) allows Mobile Nodes (MNs) attached to
the same or different Mobile Access Gateways (MAGs) to route traffic by
using localized forwarding or a direct tunnel between the gateways.
This document proposes initiation, utilization, and termination
mechanisms for localized routing between mobile access gateways
within a proxy mobile IPv6 domain.  It defines two new signaling
messages, Localized Routing Initiation (LRI) and Local Routing
Acknowledgment (LRA), that are used to realize this mechanism.

This document is a product of the Network-Based Mobility Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
