Abstract: To conceive the full potential of wireless IP services, Mobile Nodes (MNs) must be able to roam seamlessly across different networks. Mobile Stream Control Transmission Protocol (mSCTP) is a transport layer solution, which unlike Mobile IP (MIP), provides seamless mobility with minimum delay and negligible packet loss. However, mSCTP fails to locate the current IP address of the mobile node when Correspondent Node (CN) wants to initiate a session. In this paper, we propose DHT Chord to provide the required location management. Chord is a P2P algorithm, which can efficiently provide the IP address of the called MN by using its key-value mapping. The proposed decentralized mobility framework collectively exploits the multihoming feature of mSCTP, and efficient key-value mapping of chord to provide seamless mobility. Suitability of the framework is analyzed by preliminary analysis of chord lookup efficiency, and mSCTP handover procedure using overlay weaver and NS-2. Performance analysis shows that mSCTP multihoming feature and Chord efficient key-value mapping can provide a non-delayed, reliable, and an efficient IP handover solution.
