Performance Evaluation of Reactive and Proactive Handover Schemes for IP Micromobility Networks

Micromobility protocols aim to improve localized mobility by reducing the handover overhead. The Mobility Plane Architecture (MPA) was designed to support micromobility in standard IP or MPLS/GMPLS networks in a network-centric way, that is, the burden demanded by micromobility is placed on the network, not on the mobile nodes. The aim of this paper is to… CONTINUE READING
