Abstract

Current mobility solutions are anachronistic. They assume that nodes as well as networks must not be aware of mobility and behave as if they were static, and that any new developments must preserve that assumption. This is putting unnecessary pressure on network devices – such as routers and mobile routers – leading to a complex and under-performing network, contradicting the fundamental paradigm of the Internet: keep the network as simple as possible. In the current paper a solution for optimized network mobility that assumes nodes and networks are mobility-aware is presented. The solution is analysed and compared with two other – NEMO Basic Support and MIRON – showing that its advantages are clear.
