Abstract--In network layer based mobility protocols, such as
Mobile IP, the Correspondent Node is not aware of handovers and
therefore continues to send data at the same rate as before the
handover which may exhibit network unfriendliness, especially when
the capacities of the two subnets differ significantly. On the contrary,
transport layer based mobility protocols, such as SIGMA, do not
show such phenomena. The objective of this paper is to evaluate
and compare the network friendliness of network and transport
layer based mobility protocols. Experimental results obtained from
laboratory prototypes show that network unfriendliness is inevitable
in the network layer based mobility protocols during handover when
there is a large difference in capacities between the two networks.
Transport layer based mobility protocols are, however, more network
