Proxy Mobile IPv6 is a network-based mobility protocol where the mobility management signaling is performed by a network entity on behalf of the node requiring mobility itself. Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) enables Mobile Node (MN) to maintain its connectivity to the Internet during handover. The Mobile Access Gateway (MAG), located in the access router, retrieves the MN profile information from Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) server and sends the customized Router Advertisements to the MN, emulating the home network behavior. Theoretically there is an inclusion of AAA server in PMIPV6 but the practical inclusion is not been attempted yet, hence this paper proposes an architecture for including the AAA server into the NS2 for PMIPV6.
