This document specifies an experimental multicast handover
optimization mechanism for Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) to accelerate
the delivery of multicast traffic to mobile nodes after handovers.
The mechanism, called Subscription Information Acquisition through
the LMA (SIAL), is based on speeding up the acquisition of mobile
nodes' multicast context by the mobile access gateways.  To do that,
extensions to the current PMIPv6 protocol are proposed.  These
extensions are not only applicable to the base solution for multicast
support in Proxy Mobile IPv6, but they can also be applied to other
solutions developed to avoid the tunnel convergence problem.
Furthermore, these extensions are also independent of the role played
by the mobile access gateway within the multicast network (acting as
either multicast listener discovery proxy or multicast router).

This document is a product of the Multicast Mobility Working Group of the IETF.
