A Survey on Network Architectures for Mobility

XiuJia Jin


Currently the most well-known mobility solution for the Internet is Mobile IPv4 and Mobile IPv6. However, new challenges are brought up by all kinds of needs in mobility such that they can hardly be handled with Mobile IP alone and standard networking architecture we have now. Thus a number of new architectures are proposed to address the issues in mobility. In this paper we discuss the requirements and current solutions of mobility, and review several novel architectures proposed for IP-based wireless networks in recent years.
Keywords: Network Architectures, Mobile IP, Mobile IPv4, Mobile IPv6, Macro-Mobility, Micro-Mobility, Host Mobility, Network Mobility, IP Mobile Multicast
