Influence of Topology on Micro Mobility Protocols for Wireless Networks

R. Gunasundari and S. Shanmugavel

The support for IP-based real-time services in the next-generation mobile systems requires the coupling of mobility with quality of service. Currently, Mobile IP is the most promising solution for mobility management in the Internet. Several IP micro mobility approaches have been proposed to enhance the performance of Mobile IP which supports seamless mobility, minimum packet loss, limited handoff latency, scalability and robustness. But, most of the researches on micro mobility protocols were focused on networks with tree topology, which suffers from severe limited flexibility and scalability problem. This study investigates the influence of different topologies on the performance of the protocols namely, HMIP, HAWAII and Cellular IP. Simulation results presented in this paper are based on the Columbia IP Micro-mobility Software (CIMS).
