Abstract

Three representative protocols are proposed to support mobility for IPv6 in IETF: Mobile IPv6, Hierarchical Mobile IPv6, and Fast Handovers for Mobile IPv6. Recently, IEEE 802.11 network has been widely deployed in public areas for mobile Internet services. In the near future, IPv6 mobility support over IEEE 802.11 network is expected to be a key function to actualize the pure IP-based mobile multimedia service. The IPv6 mobility support protocols have their characteristics in terms of signaling, handover latency, lost packets, and required buffer size. In this paper, we analyze the performance of the protocols over IEEE 802.11 network. We define a packet-level traffic model and a system and mobility model. Then, we construct a framework for the performance analysis. We also make cost functions to formalize each protocol's performance. Lastly, we investigate the effect of varying parameters used to show diverse numerical results.
