Add Goal of Supporting Make before Break handover

Keywords: REQ draft Cc: netlmm@…


Vidya Narayanan:

Support for Make-Before-Break: Many L2's provide make-before-break support and is something that is important to carry at the IP layer for smooth application handoffs. This implies, for instance, that a mobility agent be able to accept packets from a node over its old and new link (old and new AR, for instance).

No consensus on adding this goal, so the issue will be closed.

Phil says:

The consensus here is not to add text to the goals document.

Supporting lingering bindings is an implementation issue and it will go into the protocol document as an implementation feature (if we don't already have text for it). There will be no support for multiple downstream paths using simultaneous bindings.
