Performance Evaluation of a New Route Optimization Technique for Mobile IP

Executive Summary

Mobile ip (mip) is an internet protocol that allows mobile nodes to have continuous network connectivity to the internet without changing their ip addresses while moving to other networks. The packets sent from Correspondent Node (CN) to a Mobile Node (MN) go first through the mobile node's Home Agent (HA), then the HA tunnels them to the MN's foreign network. One of the main problems in the original mip is the triangle routing problem. Triangle routing problem appears when the indirect path between CN and MN through the HA is longer than the direct path. This paper proposes a new technique to improve the performance of the original mip during the handoff.
