Mobility support in IP: A survey of related protocols
2004 (English)In: IEEE Network, Vol. 18, no 6, 34-40 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article presents an overview of a set of IP-based mobility protocols - Mobile IP, HAWAII, Cellular IP, Hierarchical MIP, TeleMIP, Dynamic Mobility Agent, and Terminal Independent MIP - that will play an important role in the forthcoming convergence of IP and legacy wireless networks. A comparative analysis with respect to system parameters such as location update, handoff latency and signaling overhead exposes their ability in managing micro/macro/global-level mobility. We use this observation to relate their features against a number of key design issues identified for seamless IP-based mobility as envisioned for future 4G networks.
