Title : Network Mobility Support Requirements

Filename : draft-ernst-monet-requirements-00.txt

The purpose of traditional mobility support is to provide continuous
Internet connectivity to mobile hosts (host mobility support). In
contrast, network mobility support is concerned with situations where
an entire network changes its point of attachment to the Internet and
thus its reachability in the topology. We shall refer to such a
network as a mobile network (MONET). This document tries to identify
what constraints limit the implementation and the deployment of a
potentially and ideally good solution, and what requirements
solutions must comply to. Our main aim is to raise the discussion on
the mailing list.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
