The packet loss has become an important issue to the research community, which needs to be addressed. In FMIPv6, Packet losses are significantly related to the handover latency and buffer size used for packet buffering. In the case of increased handover latency or decreased buffer size, packet losses will be increased. To solve the problem, the authors propose an Adaptive Packet buffering (APT) algorithm based on priority of packets and traffic throughput in Layer 3 (L3) were the packets are buffered by the predefined rule in the new access point during handover. This algorithm is designed to reduce packet loss in FMIPv6 and high level of throughput and low delay can be achieved through the proposed technique.
