Latency during handoffs affects the service quality of real-time applications, therefore the developing of mobility management protocols is a major challenge in the wireless network. In this paper we propose a fast and smooth handoff scheme called MIFA (Mobile IP Fast Authentication protocol), which reduces the latency of re-authentication and(More)
Latency during handoffs affects the service quality of real-time applications. This paper describes the Mobile IP Fast Authentication protocol (MIFA) and introduces a simple analytical performance model to evaluate this protocol compared to Mobile IP (MIP) and Hierarchical Mobile IP (HMIP). Our performance study shows that the handoff latency of MIFA is(More)
