Internet mobility protocols are designed to support handover between different wireless networks. Many of them, such as Mobile IPv6, suffer problems such as high handover latency, high packet overhead, high packet loss during handoff, requirement for infrastructure change, etc. To solve these problems, SEamless MObility using SHIM6 (SEMO6), a multihoming based mobility protocol framework for host mobility, has been proposed. The goal of this paper is to experimentally validate that SEMO6 can perform better than MIPv6. The authors show that SEMO6 can improve the performance of applications in IP-based mobile networks.
