This paper describes the implementation and evaluation of a link aggregation system with Mobile IPv6. The link aggregation system, SHAKE, is a system intended to the speed and reliability of wireless communication by using multiple Internet-linked mobile hosts simultaneously and dispersing the traffic between mobile hosts and a correspondent host. Because this architecture increases the number of mobile hosts concerned with the communication, the packet loss due to handover latency becomes large. We therefore developed a mechanism that decreases the packet loss by suspending the distribution of packets to mobile hosts while they are processing handover functions.
