Abstract

This paper deals with an IP multicast protocol in support of host mobility. Most of the previous multicast schemes have utilized and underlying logical structure of network topology, in other to provide a certain degree of order and predictability. On the other hand, mobility implies that a host location relative to the rest of the network changes with time; the physical connectivity of the entire network is thus modified as host move. In this case, some multicast datagrams may not delivered properly, or may delivered twice or more, to a mobile host because the destinations will keep moving whilst datagrams are delivered with different time delay. This paper first describes the relation between host mobility and multicast, by exploring the possible interactions, and presents a multicast scheme in support of Internet host mobility. A revised scheme is then proposed to adapt the multicast semantic and to optimize the communication overhead.
