This paper extends our work in developing an agent-based architecture for improved mobile QoS in next generation IP networks. Here the performance of the protocol, called AMP, is evaluated against the IETF's standard Mobile IP protocol in supporting a variety of traffic. The analyses were done using the network simulator ns2 where specialized nodes were developed as part of the protocol. The parameters studied were packet loss and delay. Results from simulations indicate that AMP outperformed Mobile IP especially during handovers in terms of lower packet delay and packet loss under CBR, VBR and bursty traffic conditions. We conclude with a discussion on further work for the proposed architecture.
