Abstract
Networks of small devices, such as environmental sen-
sors, introduce a number of new challenges for traditional
protocols and approaches. In particular, the extreme re-
source constraints characteristic of these devices force
the engineering of device and application-specific opti-
mizations in order to reduce complexity. By offloading
some, if not most, of the complexity out of the small de-
vice and into the network, we simplify the design of in-
dividual devices, and may make otherwise infeasible ap-
plications possible. In this paper, we look specifically at
the problem of global mobility, and its associated protocol
Mobile IP (MIP). We introduce the mobility gateway
which performs MIP processing on behalf of registered de-
