Abstract

Mobile computing environment makes it possible for computing activities to be maintained during movement even if a user changes its network point of attachment. Mobile IP is a standard protocol designed to be used in such mobile computing environment. However, Mobile IP has a drawback to incur a lot of handoff delays and waste network resources, since CoA(Care of Address) registration packets need to go through a HA(Home Agent) first whenever a mobile node moves. To solve this long-standing problem, this paper proposes a new scheme that, for infra-domain movement, efficiently performs local handoff without notifying the HA Specifically, based on the notion of load balance, the proposed scheme allows every FA(Foreign Agent) in a domain to become the root FA(also known as domain FA) dynamically, thus distributing the registration task into many other foreign agents. The dynamic root assignment through load balancing ultimately leads to fast network response due to less frequent transmission of registration packets.
