The introduction of IP-based real-time services in next-generation mobile systems requires coupling mobility with quality of service. The mobility of the node can disrupt or even intermittently disconnect an ongoing real-time session. The duration of such an interruption is called disruption time or handover latency, and can heavily affect user satisfaction. Therefore, this delay needs to be minimized to provide good quality of VoIP services. In this article, we focus on network-layer mobility and mobile IP since it is a natural candidate for providing such mobility. We evaluate different low-latency schemes based on mobile IP and compare their performances in terms of disruption time for VoIP services. Low-latency handoffs are performed by anticipating and/or postponing the mobile IP registration process. With these methods, disruption time is reduced to 200 ms in most considered cases.
