Abstract

To realize the full potential of mobile multimedia, mobility protocols are needed to handle situations when nodes move while in a multimedia session. Many mobility protocols have been proposed for IP-based networks. In some important cases in using these mobility protocols such as mobile IPv6 with route optimization, a problem can arise when both nodes are mobile and move simultaneously. The problem is that both sides’ binding updates could be lost. A few solutions have recently been proposed. A crucial indicator of the importance of the simultaneous mobility problem, and of its solutions, is the probability of its occurrence. However, previous articles have used only a simple analytical model to estimate the probability of the simultaneous mobility problem occurring. In this article, we present new and more accurate results on the variation of this probability with a number of critical variables.
