Now-a-days with the increasing number of mesh clients it has become a challenging task to provide uninterrupted internet connectivity for the clients. To solve this problem several mobility management schemes such as iMesh and MEMO, have been proposed. The major drawbacks of these schemes are: larger handoff delay and higher signaling overhead. A new mobility management scheme named Forward Pointer Based Routing (FPBR) is proposed here and an analytical comparison is made with iMesh and MEMO. FPBR achieves low handoff latency and less signaling overhead. Moreover, FPBR supports multipath routing. This increases the reliability of the network.
