An enhanced fast handover triggering mechanism for fast proxy mobile IPv6
Handover delay performance is a critical issue to support real-time applications in wireless networks. To address this issue, this paper presents an Enhanced fast handover Triggering Mechanism (ETM) to improve the handover performance of mobile nodes (MNs) in Fast Proxy Mobile IPv6 (FPMIPv6). Making use of the information from the link layer, the ETM predicts two cases that the MNs perform in the reactive handover mode. Then, it establishes the bi-directional tunnel in advance for fast handover. As a result, the reactive handover delay is significantly reduced. Integrating the ETM into FPMIPv6 forms an enhanced Fast Proxy Mobile IPv6 (eFPMIPv6) protocol. Simulation experiments show that with the presented ETM mechanism, the eFPMIPv6 outperforms the original FPMIPv6 in terms of the overall handover performance.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
