Performance Analysis of (AIMM-I46) Addressing, Inter-mobility and Interoperability Management Architecture between IPv4 and IPv6 Networks

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (volume 167)


Transition and Mobility management has been a growing concern with numerous problems originating from roaming between IPv6 and IPv4 access networks owing to ever-growing research. Hence the various architectures concerning transition/mobility among IPv6 and IPv4 are studied. It is an observed fact that, there is still a need for more research to be done on the IPv6 transition in order to solve many problems that are not yet resolved. Henceforth, AIMM-I46 architecture has been proposed and designed as an integrated IPv4/IPv6 addressing, mobility and transition mechanism. In this paper, the performance of AIMM-I46 architecture analyzed when different data size, link capacity are used. Adventnet Network Simulator Toolkit 7 is used to evaluate the performance of AIMM-I46, using different performance evaluation metrics such as data loss rate, throughput, packet overhead and latency which have significant implications on any protocol performance. The simulated results shows that the proposed architecture provides inter mobility and interoperability between IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
