A Cross-Layer Decision for Mobile IP Handover

Mohamed Alnas, Abdalla M. Hanashi, and Irfan Awan
Abstract—Network layer indications are not readily available upon a link change; therefore, general dependence on the network layer may introduce unnecessary delays due to network layer signaling for a simple link layer handover. If information could be gathered at link layer to determine the need for network layer signaling, then both the delay and signaling load could be really improved over the current standards of Mobile IP.
This paper presents a Cross-layer decision on two layer network and link layers to improve the performance of Enhanced Mobile IP (E-Mobile IP) handover in which reducing packet loss and latency during handover process.

Index Terms—Mobile IP handover, fast handover, packet loss, handover latency.
