Due to the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses, the deployment of IPv6 has become imminent ever. With the increasing popularity of mobile wireless connections, a comprehensive mobile IPv6 protocol is high demanded. However, the current MIPv6 standard fails to provide consistent QoS during a handover process. This thesis analyses the current standard, and surveys the existing solutions for resolving the issue. Moreover, we propose a new mechanism which is named DAD-Less MIPv6. The mechanism uses a unique but relatively simple method to shorten the handover delay. It is described in detail, and presented with simulation results for demonstrating its performance.
