An Efficient Handover Scheme for PMIPv6 in IEEE 802.16/WiMAX Network
In the era of wireless communication, mobility management is an important issue. The world is deploying WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) as the standard for broadband wireless communication because of its wide application areas, high speed and architecture for seamless handover. Alongside, a network-based mobility management protocol called PMIPv6 (Proxy Mobile Internet Protocol version 6) is being actively standardized and is starting to attract considerable attention among the telecommunication and Internet communities for its less handover latency. In PMIPv6, the functioning network provides control of the mobility management on behalf of the mobile node.
