This letter presents a mobility session redirection scheme for Proxy Mobile IPv6 networks (PMIPv6-MSR), facilitating LMA changes in the middle of a mobility session for, e.g. load-balancing purpose. Analytical results confirm that the proposed PMIPv6-MSR shows lower blocking and dropping probability than PMIPv6 without load control (PMIPv6-NLC), as offered load increases.
