This paper addresses mobility management (MM) requirements and framework for systems beyond IMT-2000 (SBI2K), based on the standardization works that has so far been done in ITU-T study group 19. We first identify the requirements for MM in SBI2K. Based on the identified MM requirements, we describe the MM framework for location management and handover management for SBI2K. We then review and analyze some of the existing IP-based MM protocols. From the analysis and comparison, we see that the existing MM schemes cannot meet all of the MM requirements for SBI2K. It is naturally concluded that further work is needed to enhance the available MM schemes SBI2K.
