UPMT (Universal Per-application Mobility management using Tunnels) has been proposed as an application level solution for mobility management. Main features of UPMT are the "Per-application" handover and the full compatibility with legacy applications, legacy hosts and existing networking infrastructure. A critical issue of the existing proposal is the scalability, as the specification foresee a single Anchor Node (AN) handling the mobility management signaling procedure and acting as "tunnel server" for relaying information towards the Mobile Hosts.
