Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) was standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) NetLMM WG as a network-based mobility management protocol. This protocol allows the Mobile Node (MN) to maintain service connectivity while moving within the PMIPv6 domain. PMIPv6 mobility management is different from the Host-based Mobility management protocols; where the mobility signaling management is controlled by the serving network on behalf of the MN. PMIPv6 introduced new network entities to handle the signaling on behalf of the MN. However, PMIPv6 protocol can only manage the MN's reachability within a local domain (intra-domain).
