Abstract

In this paper, we use the OMNET++ simulator in
order to evaluate the performance of the basic Mobile IPv6
protocol and some of its proposed variations. The most
important metric we are interested in is the handover
latency, which is measured for various combinations of the
proposed Mobile IPv6 variations and then this metric is
used, combined with factors such as the complexity of the
implementation, in order to evaluate and identify the best
possible configuration for the operation of the protocol.
