Design and Experimental Evaluation of a Route Optimisation Solution for NEMO
An important requirement for IP networks to achieve the aim of ubiquitous connectivity is NEtwork MObility (NEMO). With Network mobility support the authors can provide Internet access from mobile platforms, such as public transportation vehicles, to normal nodes that do not need to implement any special mobility protocol. The network mobility basic support protocol has been proposed in the IETF as a first solution to this problem, but this solution has severe performance limitations. This paper presents MIRON: Mobile IPv6 Route Optimisation for NEMO, an approach to the problem of network mobility support that overcomes the limitations of the basic solution by combining two different modes of operation: a Proxy-MR and an address delegation with built-in routing mechanisms.
