Abstract

The IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) micro-mobility management protocol cellular IP (CIP) can inter-network with mobile IP (MP) to provide wide area mobility. Most of CIP literature concentrates on the micro-mobility aspects of the protocol. The aim of this paper is to address the wide area mobility side of the protocol, i.e. the interconnection between CIP and MIP. More specifically the paper develops a cost function-based analytical model to assess the performance of the CIP-based wide area mobility. The performance of CIP with MIPv4 is compared with CIP with MIPv6.
