A Mobility Scheme for Personal and Terminal Mobility
An IP mobility support protocol that enables personal and terminal mobility for IP-based applications is put forward. This protocol does not require new network entities or support from network service providers. It comprises an innovative IP-to-IP address mapping module at the network layer and an user agent to interact with a directory service server and correspondent nodes. It does not require a permanent IP address and a home server. It does not use tunnelling on mobile nodes nor alter route path of IP packets. In this paper, the authors describe their implementation and present their experimental results.
