Improved Handover Performance by Integration of Fast Handover in Hierarchical Setup
In the infrastructure based network, mobility management is going wide importance. Currently, seamless mobility in IPv6 network is classified into HMIPv6 and FMIPv6. The HMIPv6 is used to reduce the signaling overhead and delay concerned with Binding Update in mobile IPv6. But, there is no provision for fast handover. FMIPv6 is used to reduce the handover latency by using fast handover. The proposed scheme integrates FMIPv6 in HMIPv6 to improve handover performance. With the use of NS-2 simulation, the result shows that the proposed scheme gives better handover performance than HMIPv6 and FMIPv6.
