Abstract

NEMO Basic Support Protocol has several problems such as pinball routing, large header overhead due to multiple passes of tunneling, and a single point of failure. This paper proposes a protocol called νLIN6 which supports both network mobility and host mobility in IPv6. In νLIN6, packet relay is required only once regardless of the nested level in network mobility, while optimal routing is always provided in host mobility. A fixed-sized extension header is used in network mobility while there is no header overhead in host mobility. νLIN6 is more tolerant of network failure and mobility agent failure than NEMO Basic Support Protocol. It also allows ordinary IPv6 nodes to communicate with nodes in the mobile network.
