With total global projected mobile phone subscribers expected to reach 1.37 billion in 2004 (according to Strategis Group), mobile IP is poised to represent a key technology for enabling various non-voice and multimedia services. This book focuses on the current Mobile IPv6 standard, which was finalized in 2003 by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). MIPv6 allows a mobile node to transparently maintain connections while moving from one subnet to another. Part I provides the necessary background on IPv6 and the Internet. Part II provides a detailed analysis of the Mobile IPv6 protocol, starting with an overview of the protocol's operation and then moves on to describe the issues involved in securing Mobile IPv6. Part III examines performance and optimization topics related to Mobile IPv6. Part IV is focused on deployment issues for IPv6 and Mobile IPv6. The author presents some of the most important mechanisms designed to allow IPv6 to be deployed in an IPv4 Internet. The topic of IPv6 mobility will only gain momentum as the wireless industry continues to grow, supporting more than 1 billion devices with unique IP addresses.
