Nonfinal Mobility Header for Mobile IPv6 (Obsolete)
Description: This document specifies operations to allow inclusion of data along with a mobility header (from Mobile IPv6) containing a Binding Update or Binding Acknowledgement message. In this way, smoother handovers and reduced jitter and bandwidth utilization can be achieved. Interactions with IPsec-based verification of mobility messages are described; basically, establishment of such IPsec-based methods preclude the use of the mobility header specified in this document, unless simple modifications to IPsec can be utilised.

Simultaneous Bindings for Mobile IPv6 Fast Handovers (Obsolete)
Description: Fast Handover for Mobile IPv6 [1] and describes protocols that minimise the amount of service disruption when performing layer-3 handovers. This draft extends the Fast Handover protocol with a simultaneous bindings function and the BETH capabilities with a bicasting function to minimise packet loss at the MN. Traffic for the MN is therefore bicast or n-cast for a short period to its current location and to one or more locations where the MN is expected to move to shortly. This removes the timing ambiguity regarding when to start sending traffic for the MN to its new point of attachment following a Fast Handover and allows the decoupling of layer-2 and layer-3 handovers. It also saves the MN periods of service disruption in the case of ping-pong movement.
