Handoff Performance Comparison of Mobile IP, Fast Handoff and mSCTP in Mobile Wireless Networks

We compare the performance of three handoff protocols, namely Mobile IP, Fast Handoff and mSCTP. Among the three schemes, Mobile IP suffers from the lowest data throughput and longest handoff latency. Fast Handoff can perform better, provided that the mobile node can handoff to the new base station at an appropriate time instant when data forwarding between… (More)
