Title: Anchor node selection in a distributed mobility management environment

Abstract: Systems, methods, and instrumentalities to select a distributed gateway (D-GW). A WTRU may be configured to detect a request for an address associated with content. The WTRU may receive an address list associated with the content. The WTRU may select a distributed gateway (D-GW). If an address of a currently connected D-GW is included in the address list, the WTRU may select the currently connected D-GW. If the address of the currently connected D-GW is not in the address list and an address of an anchor D-GW that is not currently connected is included in the address list, the WTRU may select the anchor D-GW that is not currently connected. If the address of the currently connected D-GW is not in the address list and the address of the anchor D-GW that is not currently connected is not in the address list, the WTRU may select the currently connected D-GW.
