The goal of IP mobility support is to provide the means by which applications on distinct computers are able to communicate when one or both computers have changed their physical network location. Mobile IP (MIP) tries to provide such support with a solution at the network layer. To date, MIP deployment is insignificant and this is likely to remain so, unless there is a breakthrough. In contrast, Network Address Translation (NAT) is a network technology that is widely deployed. The Reverse…

Enabling Seamless Internet Mobility

The key ideas are to allow any new connection to use the current IP address and to take advantage of the heavy-tailed nature of connections, which implies that after a network change only a small number of connections need to be retained.

IP Mobility Without Home Agents

This master thesis presents a real-world IP Mobility System (IPMS) that suits the needs of today's mobile users and the requirements of today’s IPv4-based networks and is a hybrid combination of multiple improvements.

An Infrastructureless End-to-End High Performance Mobility Protocol

This paper demonstrates an alternate mobility scheme which does not require any such infrastructure and uses only end-point technique and yet provides much faster loss-free handoff and provides a detail model based performance comparison between the two.

This paper proposes an alternate approach for robust mobility based on the principle of 'interactive transparent networking' where all networking layers remain lightweight but are engineered for interactivity and can dramatically reduce handoff latency and improve TCP performance by offering shorter routes with loss-free handoffs and smooth, low-jitter voice stream.

This protocol may be implemented as an extension to the Mobile IP protocol, as they share certain similarities in their execution, and would spur its deployment as Mobile IP is an open standard that will likely be used by mobile users.

Load Sharing using IP Network Address Translation (LSNAT)

The use of NATs is extended to offer Load share feature, where session load can be distributed across a pool of servers, instead of directing to a single server.

FTP Extensions for IPv6 and NATs

This paper specifies extensions to FTP that will allow the protocol to work over IPv4 and IPv6, and the framework defined can support additional network protocols in the future.

IP Network Address Translator (NAT) Terminology and Considerations

This document attempts to describe the operation of NAT devices and the associated considerations in general, and to define the terminology used to identify various flavors of NAT.

The IP Network Address Translator (NAT)

The two most compelling problems facing the IP Internet are IP address depletion and scaling in routing and the short-term solution is CIDR (Classless InterDomain Routing).

IP Encapsulation within IP

This document specifies a method by which an IP datagram may be encapsulated (carried as payload) within an IPdatagram as a means to alter the normal IP routing for datagrams.
