AbstractThe Fast Handovers for Mobile IPv6 (FMIPv6)
protocol was developed from the experience of MIPv6 and the
facilities provided by link layer triggers, allowing for a proactive
approach to handover that minimises packet exchange delay and
packet loss. After handover, the mobile node may carry out
Return Routability with the correspondent node(s) for route
optimization. However, this method leaves scope to optimize
handover delays derived from the signalling message exchange.
This paper proposes an enhancement to FMIPv6, the Proactive
Route Optimization for FMIPv6 (PRO-FMIPv6) protocol, which
significantly reduces the signalling and thereby improves the
overall performance of the handover process. Simulation results
suggest a delay reduction up to 50% over other current
proposals: the FMIPv6 protocol, Enhanced Route Optimization
and Proactive Bindings for FMIPv6.
