2. According to Howie, Sun, and Koivisto (n.d.) Hierarchical Mobile IPv6 builds over the basic MIPv6 protocol. model. It adds an intermediary HA called a Mobility Anchor Point (MAP) to the basic model. The MAP is fewer router-hops away from the MN than the basic HA. The exit point of the tunnel from the HA is now situated at the MAP. The MAP, in turn, has a bi-directional tunnel to the MN.
a. Initially all ARs advertise the address of the MAP to attached MNs and MN establishes contact with the old AR and the new AR with messages RtSol and receives acknowledgements RtAdv from both of them. The total time taken for this is

3. According to Dunmore and Pagztis (2005), the aim of FMIPv6 protocol is to allow MN to configure a new CoA before it moves and connects to a new network. It also allows the MN to use the new CoA immediately upon connecting to the new network. Furthermore, the FMIPv6 protocol seeks to eliminate the latency involved during the MN’s BU procedure by providing a bi-directional tunnel between the old and new networks while the BU procedures are being performed. Thus, compared to normal MIPv6 operation, the FMIPv6 protocol claims to be more efficient as it removes IPv6 configuration delay introduced by DAD, router discovery and address configuration. It also removes the delay introduced by the MN performing BU procedures with its HA and CNs
a. MN first sends a RtSol message to old AR and receives RtAdv message from it which takes a total time

Hierarchical Mobile MPLS
6. According to Yang and Makrakis (2001) conventional mobile MPLS does not support mobility, and hence researchers look into ways to integrate Mobile IP with MPLS to support mobility in MPLS networks. However, the methods of the integration prove to be obsolete in the latest wireless networks which are implemented on micro-sized cells. For overcoming the limitations due to micro-cells, Yang and Makrakis have proposed a new scheme to support local mobility MPLS which they have named as hierarchical mobile MPLS. Hierarchical MPLS, as will be seen in the analysis below, handles the movement of the mobile host locally, that is to say in the same MPLS domain there is no need to send the location update messages to the remote home agent. In other words, in the Hierarchical Mobile MPLS, the movements of a mobile host moving within a domain are transparent to the home agent of the mobile host.

Micro-Mobile MPLS (Integration of MIP & MPLS)
7. Langar, Bouabdallah and Tohme (2006) give the analysis of Micro-Mobile MPLS, which integrates Mobile IP and MPLS protocols using a two level hierarchy. Their proposal has two variants. In the first variant, called FH-Micro Mobile MPLS, we consider the fast handoff mechanism, which anticipates the LSP procedure setup with the neighboring subnets to reduce service disruption. In the second variant, called FC-Micro Mobile MPLS, the forwarding chain mechanism, which is a set of forwarding paths, is provided to track efficiently the host mobility within a domain. The forwarding chain can reduce registration update cost and provide low handoff latency.

Handoff Support procedure in Micro Mobile MPLS
There are two types of handoff in the scheme: Intra-LER and Inter-LER handoffs. An Intra-LER handoff occurs when the MN moves between two BSs managed by the same LER/FA. An Inter-LER handoff occurs when a new BS and the old BS are under different LER/FAs.
a. Once the association to the current BS is lost, the MN sends a Movement signaling message to the current LER/FA with a time of , which initiates the buffering mechanism and stores in-flight packets. The time taken for this is given by +
b. The MN issues a local interface-update message in the subnet to which the MN belongs, so that all stations in the same subnet, especially the current LER/FA, update their ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) cache, taking time .
c. The current LER/FA stops the buffering mechanism and forwards in-flight packets destined for the MN toward the new BS. This takes time
d. The LERG continues to use the old LSP between it and the current LER/FA to send packets to the MN taking a time of
Total handoff time in this case is given by
Inter-LER Hand off
a. When MN finds that it has entered a new IP subnet , it sends a registration request to the new LER/FA in time and performs steps which is same as in the registration procedure

b. MN notifies the current LER/FA for the possible handoff by sending a handoff initiate signaling message in time
c. LER/FA looks into its neighbor mapping table to get the new LER/FA’s IP address in time
d. LER/FA then informs the LERG for the possible handoff operation in time
e. FH-Micro mobile MPLS will pre-establish an extra passive LSP between the LERG and the new subnet that the MN is likely to visit in time
f. The current LER/FA informs the MN for the new CoA by sending a neighbor advertisement message which takes time
g. FA forwards the mobile IP registration request message to the LERG in time

b. The existing LSP between the LERG and the old subnet will be extended from the old FA to the new one in time
c. MN has a buffer for storing IP address of the LER/FAs which is updated in time
d. Packets traveling towards the MN are intercepted by the first FA in the chain and are then forwarded along the chain of FAs. It takes time
e. To avoid delays a threshold on length is set. When this threshold is reached, the MN is reached and deletes all addresses in the buffer. This takes time
The total time for handover will be as given below:
