Internet is evolving as a main infrastructure for wireless and mobile communication. Mobile IPv4 (MIPv4) is a protocol designed by Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to support seamless roaming of mobile devices. MIPv4 allows mobile devices (or nodes) to have continuity of communication without any interruption while in mobility. MIPv4 handoff is a process by which Mobile Node (MN) changes its point of attachment from subnet to a new subnet. In this paper, a multiparty handoff scheme is proposed to minimize the handoff latency and packet loss during rapid movement of MN.
