Mobile IPv6 has been proposed to support host mobility in the Internet, yet during a handover Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) suffers from packet disruption and packet loss. However, in MIPv6, the handover process reveals numerous problems manifested by a time-consuming network layer based movement detection. Furthermore, inherent delays associated with movement detection are unavoidable in standard MIPv6. In this paper, we propose to mitigate such effects with a more efficient fast Neighbor Discovery

Performance analysis indicates the handover latency in the proposed scheme could be reduced compared to standard MIPv6. The proposed scheme is also a strong candidate to support real-time application like VoIP.
