This paper proposes a mobility management scheme, called Access Independent Mobile Service with IPv4/IPv6 Dual Stack Support (AIMS-DS), which supports high-quality mobility service for IPv4/IPv6 dual stack nodes in heterogeneous wireless networks. The proposed scheme provides a mobile node with a fast and reliable handovers through network-based mobility control, separation of control and data planes, and cross-layer interworking. It addresses seamless mobility issues in the IPv4/IPv6 coexisting networks such as home address binding management and IP-in-IP tunneling between different address systems. The performance evaluation results show that the proposed scheme has superiority and more practicality compared to the existing approaches in terms of handover latency, packet loss and packet delivery latency.
