IPv6 Fast Handovers Research at CTIE

Nick Moore


This project is one of a number of Mobile IPv6 Projects at Monash. This project is no longer active and support is not available.

Our Fast Handovers research attempts to minimize the handover latency when a mobile node moves from one access network to another. We've identified four sources of delay, and at least one solution which eliminates each of these delays:

Movement Detection Delay-->L2 Triggers
Router Advertisement Delay-->Fast RA
Duplicate Address Detection Delay-->Optimistic DAD, MLD-DAD
Binding Update RTT-->HMIPv6, Edge Handovers
