Title : Simultaneous Bindings for Mobile IPv6 Fast Handoffs

Fast Handover for Mobile IPv6  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.

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.
