In this paper, the authors describe a new extended protocol framework for IPv6 WiFi networks, which handle multicast services whilst changing the WiFi zone within a wireless network. They modify the Mobile IPv6 function to support their framework and use ICMPv6 to maintain the multicast connection route. In addition, they extend the PIM messages to keep multicast information up to date. The detail of each step of the protocol is presented in detail within the paper.
