Micro-Mobility Solution Based on Intra-Domain Multicast and Congestion Avoiding for Two-Nodes Mobile IP Network
In this paper, the authors deal with micro-mobility in TWINBOARD network, which is two nodes mobile network architecture based on an all IP infrastructure. The two nodes are the Base Station (BS) and the Access Gateway (AG). To manage micro-mobility, they propose a new approach providing efficient and smooth handover, while being able to coexist and inter-operate with existing technologies. Specifically, they propose an intra-domain multicast-based handover approach combined with an Alert mechanism. Alert approach is a distributed mechanism that provides routers with information regarding the congestion state of other routers without any modifications on existing routing protocol.
