Abstract

In Hierarchical Mobile IPv6 networks, how an mobile node select an appropriate mobility anchor point (MAP) has a vital effect on the overall network performance. In this paper, we evaluate the performances of four MAP selection schemes: the furthest MAP selection scheme, the nearest MAP selection scheme, the mobility-based MAP selection scheme, and the adaptive MAP selection scheme. The dynamic schemes (i.e., the mobility-based and the adaptive MAP selection schemes) achieve more desirable performances than the static schemes (i.e., the furthest and the nearest MAP selection schemes), since the dynamic schemes consider mobility of MNs. Also, the dynamic schemes can achieve load balancing among MAPs, where the adaptive MAP selection is better than the mobility-based MAP selection scheme.
