Unlike Mobile IP protocols, which specify centralized mobility management schemes, the future network is envisioned to embrace distributed approaches to mobility so that it can avoid a single point of failure and triangular routing problems as well as optimize the handover process. This report presents a distributed mobility management scheme of HIMALIS (Heterogeneity Inclusion and Mobility Adaptation through Locator ID Separation) architecture where mobility signaling takes place through the control network composed of end hosts and dedicated functional nodes in the network. Moreover, the signaling functions are network layer independent; therefore, the proposed scheme can be applied to a future networking environment where multiple protocols do coexist in the network layer. It discusses the architectural components, mobility protocol, and an analysis of performance results obtained from an emulation system.
