This document introduces extensions to Mobile IPv6 and IPv6 Neighbour
Discovery to allow for local mobility handling.  Hierarchical
mobility management for Mobile IPv6 is designed to reduce the amount
of signalling between the mobile node, its correspondent nodes, and
its home agent.  The Mobility Anchor Point (MAP) described in this
document can also be used to improve the performance of Mobile IPv6
in terms of handover speed.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
