The Access Network Identifier (ANI) mobility option was introduced in
RFC 6757, "Access Network Identifier (ANI) Option for Proxy Mobile              
IPv6".  This enables a Mobile Access Gateway (MAG) to convey
identifiers like the network identifier, geolocation, and operator
identifier.  This specification extends the Access Network Identifier
mobility option with sub-options to carry the civic location and the
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.

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

This is now a Proposed Standard.
