The need to stay connected to the Internet ''Anytime" and ''Anywhere" is becoming more and more required in the recent years with the development of wireless networks. The NEMO basic support protocol was developed to grant the Internet connection for an entire mobile network, like vehicle or aircraft network. In NEMO a Mobile Router manages the mobility of the entire network on behalf of the other nodes in order to reduce the overhead of signaling messages. The critical part of mobility support is to reduce the handover latency, particularly when a Mobile Router is not reachable. This handover period degrades the performance of most delay sensitive applications.
