This paper proposes a scalable solution for the support for globally moving networks. It is basically oriented to airborne mobile networks built in commercial aircrafts in order to provide Internet access to the passengers. As opposed to currently used solutions, the proposed solution has no impact in the global routing tables while it provides optimized paths between the mobile network and the rest of the Internet. The proposed solution is an extension to the IETF standard network mobility support protocol and relies on the communication through multiple geographically distributed Home Agents in order to avoid panoramic routing imposed by single anchor points as in the case of a single Home Agent. The proposed solution includes a mechanism to select the best Home Agent to route new communications through.
