Now-a-days, wireless networks are facing problems due to the most used network protocol IPv4, such as end of addresses capacity, and poor security and quality of service performances. One of the major problems faced by different wireless networks now-a-days is the mobility. Inter-radio access technologies handovers, roaming, and application continuity problems motivate the MIPv6 rather than MIPv4. This paper will cover the main benefits and drawbacks for the different mobile IPs via literal and simulation discussions. Using IPv4 tunnels to carry MIPv6 as an alternate will be discussed also, in case of not all-IPv6 network is used.
