IMS-Centric Evaluation of IPv4/IPv6 Transition Methods in 3G UMTS Systems

The Internet Protocol is facing version change nowadays, IPv4 will be replaced by IPv6 in the near future. This transition strongly affects also wireless and mobile architectures due to widespread application of IP-based mobile networking architectures, the continuously increasing number of mobile Internet users, and the emerging convergence of different communication services driven by the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). However, both IPv6 and IMS are deeply covered in the existing literature as self-possessed researches, the challenge of provisioning IPv6-based IMS services over 3rd Generation (3G) Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) networks as well as related problems and performance issues were not considered so far.
