This book presents Mobile Internetworking concepts, principles and practices. It describes how Mobile IPv6, an Internet Standard, provides a foundation for a Mobile Internet. The Mobile IPv6 is not only a new design but also includes enhancements such as Route Optimization as an integral part of the specification. The book describes advanced mobility protocols, including Fast Handovers and Context Transfers that enable the experience of seamless mobility for the mobile user. Finally, it describes some emerging applications, including multi-access mobility across disparate wireless systems (e.g., WLAN, GPRS, 1XRTT), enterprise and campus-wide mobility using WLAN, and mobile networks (such as might be found on a train or aircraft).
