Mobile IP

An enhancement to the IP protocol that forwards email and other data to traveling users. Mobile IP employs agents in both the user's home network and in the remote network. When logging into a remote network, users register their presence, and the home agent forwards the packets to the remote network.

Thus, in the unexpected case, the handover latency of FMIPv6 may become longer than even MIPv6.
MIPv6 [3] is the host-based global mobility management scheme for IPv6 networks.
The performance evaluations and comparisons in MIPv6, FMIPv6 and EFACC scheme are shown in section 4.
9 that more packets are lost in the original MIPv6 scheme when there is a vertical handover.
As we mentioned in the previous sub-section, these issues are handled in MIPv6 [2] and HMIPv6 [6], which support route optimization and a lowering of routing bandwidth overhead.
Also, they proposed a scheme that combines multicast routing with MIPv6 to support a mobile network on the Internet.
This improvement is a direct result of the ability of the MN whereby it can receive video packets from the pAR until the MN sends the LP to the pAR, and the MN can also receive video packets as soon as it moves to new visited networks by using verified tentative CoAs that are based on the appropriate selection metric of the wireless technology with the MIMO-transmission mode; however, the Hierarchical MIPv6 (HMIPv6) [8] is proposed for the handover-latency enhancement in the local mobility region.
The main protocol which is used in this approach is MIPv6, which uses two IPv6 addresses, one address is used for identification, and the second is used for device location.
Besides this the MIPV6 uses neighbor discovery features and address auto configuration to operate on networks that are not owned or distant, this neglects the creation of special routers to act as outside agents.
We will compare our novel scheme with the global mobility support using MIPv6.
This enables the network to move among other external networks to maintain a continuous network connection through the expansion of MIPv6 (Mobile IPv6) [2].
