Hierarchical Mobile IPv6 (HMIPv6) was designed to support IP micro-mobility management in the next generation Internet Protocol v6 (IPv6) and the Next Generation Networks (NGN) framework. The general idea behind this protocol is the usage of Mobility Anchor Point (MAP) located at any level router of network to support hierarchical mobility management and seamless handover. Further, the distance MAP selection in HMIPv6 causes MAP overloaded and increase frequent binding update as the network grows. Therefore, to address the issue in designing MAP selection scheme, the authors propose an enhance distance scheme with a dynamic load control mechanism.
