With the rapid growth in the number of mobile subscribers and mobile devices, the demand high-speed Internet access is becoming a primary concern in our lives. Not long ago, the most stable and well known solution of IP-based mobility management is Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6). Even if MIPv6 is a well-known mature standard for IPv6 mobility management support, however, it has revealed some problems such as handover latency, packet loss, and signaling overhead. Thus, a new IPv6 mobility management protocol called Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) is being actively standardized by the IETF NETLMM Working Group. Unlike the various host-based protocols such as MIPv6, a network-based approach such as PMIPv6 has salient features and is expected to expedite the real deployment of IP-based mobility management. In this paper, we present an implementation of PMIPv6 in NS-3 network simulator and the evaluation of the simulation for validating.
