IP-based IMT Network Platform(IP 2 ) is an ubiquitous platform supporting mobility using two step IP address mode converting -IP host address(IPha) and IP routing address(IPra) -in a backbone network. Mobile Node(MN) in IP 2 maintains its state as either active or dormant state, which is transferred to active state through Paging process when communication is required. In this paper, we proposed a Paging method using agent to resolve the problem of the conventional Paging method which transmits

Performance evaluation of the proposed method using NS-2 showed that the usage of network resources becomes more efficient by reducing Paging loads, especially under the condition of increased nodes.
