In networks with bandwidth constraints, such as wireless cellular
networks, compression of IP and transport headers may be employed to
obtain better utilization of the available spectrum capacity. When
header compression is used along with handovers in such networks,
the header compression context needs to be relocated from one IP
access point (i.e., a router) to another in order to achieve seamless
operation. In this document, we propose a mechanism to achieve this
compression context relocation using options for the handover ICMP
messages defined for IPv6 and suboptions for the destination options
used by mobile nodes to request smooth handovers.

exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with

up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
