Abstract-- The Internet has evolved from a wired infrastruc-
ture to a hybrid of wired and wireless domains. As network
access is now provided with much of the last mile being a
wireless mobile environment, delivering rich multimedia to users
is now a necessity. However, despite the advent of new technology
and standards such as Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6), there is still an
important dilemma over the choice of systems that either achieve
high levels of performance or offer easier deployment. The very
deployment of IPv6 is delayed for this reason; network providers
continue to use legacy systems. The goal of this paper then is
to offer insight into this issue by examining the case of data
streaming to MIPv6 users through the use of multicast. By
