Title

Intra-domain mobility management for a tree-type network topology

Document Type

Conference Proceeding

Abstract

A mechanism is devised for performing handoff in mobile networks. It is based on the micro-mobility concept and packet forwarding strategy. With a comparably small signaling overhead, the mechanism provides the smooth handoff when mobile nodes change the points of their attachment. The routing is based on a flat routing table look-up with caching the binding information on current location of mobile nodes. The simulation results show a lower rate of packet losses and high throughput than that encountered for Mobile IP and Cellular IP.
