Distributed Mobility Management solutions allow networks to be set up
in such a way that traffic is distributed optimally and centrally
deployed anchors are not relied upon to provide IP mobility support. 

There are many different approaches to address Distributed Mobility
Management -- for example, extending network-based mobility protocols
(like Proxy Mobile IPv6) or client-based mobility protocols (like
Mobile IPv6), among others. This document follows the former approach
and proposes a solution based on Proxy Mobile IPv6, in which mobility
sessions are anchored at the last IP hop router (called the mobility
anchor and access router). The mobility anchor and access router is
an enhanced access router that is also able to operate as a local
mobility anchor or mobility access gateway on a per-prefix basis. The
document focuses on the required extensions to effectively support
the simultaneous anchoring several flows at different distributed
