Abstract

Hierarchical Mobile IPv6 (HMIPv6) has been proposed to accommodate frequent mobility of terminals within the Internet. It utilizes a router, named Mobility Anchor Point (MAP), so that networks can manage mobile terminals without floods of signaling message. Note here that, particularly in a wide area network, such as a mobile communication network, it is efficient to distribute several MAPs within the same network and make the MAP domains cover overlapped areas. This enables the network to manage the terminals in a flexible manner according to their different mobility scenarios. The method described in the Internet-Draft at the IETF, however, lets mobile terminals select its MAP. This may cause load concentration at some particular MAPs and/or floods of signaling messages, because the terminals may not select a feasible MAP in a desirable manner. In this paper, a MAP selection method in distributed-MAPs environment is proposed. It reduces signaling messages to/from outside networks without load concentration at any particular MAPs. Finally, we show that the proposed method works effectively by simulation experiments.
