To solve the IP mobility problem the use of multicast has been proposed in a number of different approaches, applying multicast in different characteristic ways. In this paper we provide a framework to classify such approaches by analyzing requirements, options for using multicast protocols, and mobility functionalities augmenting the multicast. Within this framework we identify promising combinations of mechanisms and derive four classes of multicast protocols. These classes include both thedoi:10.1007/978-3-642-55569-5_19 dblp:conf/kivs/FestagKW03 fatcat:7pmssvpunbcc3iqwj6dygr6blu
