To keep your IP when roaming:

3. The old school way: use mobile IP or some other tunneling mechanism
   (or VPN) so you can keep your same IP.

4. Use a "virtual subnet" model similar to:


The draft is focused on data centers and VM migration, but the problem
is the same with client migration/mobility.  I would argue that it is
even easier to "discover" the location of a client with Wi-Fi because
of the association/authentication handshake with the AP rather than
relying on a Gratuitous ARP/ND or LLDP, VSI, etc.

5. Use LISP:
