Abstract: Mobile IPv6 with fast Handover enables a Mobile Node (MN) to quickly detect at the IP layer that it has moved to a new subnet by receiving link-related information from the link-layer; furthermore it gathers anticipative information about the new Access Point (AP) and the associated subnet prefix when the MN is still connected to the previous Corresponding Node (CN). The aim of this paper for the fast Mobile IPv6 handover (FMIPv6) protocol is to allow an MN to configure a new Care of-Address (nCoA), before it moves and connects to a new network. Furthermore, the FMIPv6 protocol seeks to eliminate the latency involved during the MN’s Binding Update (BU) procedure by providing a bi-directional tunnel between the old and new networks while the BU procedures are being performed.
