Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) is a network-based mobility management
protocol.  The mobility entities involved in the Proxy Mobile IPv6
protocol, the mobile access gateway (MAG) and the local mobility
anchor (LMA), set up tunnels dynamically to manage mobility for a
mobile node within the Proxy Mobile IPv6 domain.  This document
describes a heartbeat mechanism between the MAG and the LMA to detect
failures, quickly inform peers in the event of a recovery from node
failures, and allow a peer to take appropriate action.  [STANDARDS
