This paper proposes an evolved architecture from 3G networks to provide basic and advanced positioning methods for location based services in mobile IPv6-based radio access networks. We start analyzing current status of location-based services (i.e. LBS or LCS) and architectures in 3G networks as well as state-of-the-art research on LBS and mobile Internet. Next we set the requirements the solution should fulfill. We continue proposing the evolved architecture for support of basic and advanced positioning methods, using MIPv6 and HMIPv6 as mobility scenario for the mobile IPv6 based RAN, describing element's functions and changes from current approaches as well as description of the dynamic behavior. We complete the proposal with a bandwidth analysis of the signaling, identifying issues when planning implementation of LCS services in the network.
