IPv6 Flow Handoff in Ad-Hoc Wireless Networks Using Mobility Prediction


In an ad hoc wireless network, mobile hosts are acting as routers and the network topology is constantly changing due to node mobility. The disruptions can cause serious degradation for real-time session. This paper describes a new protocol, the Flow Oriented Routing Protocol (FORP), for routing real-time IPv6 flows (e.g., voice and data) in highly mobile ad hoc wireless networks. A new concept called "multi-hop handoff " is introduced to anticipate topological changes and perform rerouting, thus limiting the disruption of a flow due to the changing topology. The performance of the proposed scheme is compared to other routing approaches.
