Abstract

The Virtual Internet Protocol (VIP) is proposed to provide host mobility in the Internet. Unlike other schemes, VIP introduces logical identifiers for mobile hosts. VIP is defined as an instance of the Virtual Network Protocol, a network layer protocol providing the transport layer with host migration transparency and which is applicable to any connectionless-mode network protocol. VIP features scalability to the scale of the network and the total number of mobile hosts. It is free from routing loops with all packets, except for the first packet, traversing the optimum rate. VIP also tolerates the loss of control packets. Currently, VIP is running on a test network.
