Mobile IPv6 performs mobility management to mobile node within IPv6 networks. Since IPv6 is not widely deployed yet, it’s an important feature to let Mobile IPv6 support mobile node moving to IPv4 network and maintaining the established communications. DSMIPv6 specification extends Mobile IPv6 capabilities to allow dual stack mobile nodes to move within IPv4 and IPv6 networks. This paper describes the implementation of this feature based on open source MIPL under Linux. By performing experiments on testbed using the implementation, it is confirmed that the DSMIPv6 works as expected.
