The Mobile IP has been developed to be the key element in the future All-IP networks in providing continuous services for hosts while they are moving. The Mobile IPv6 protocol manages the connectivity of the mobile hosts during their movements, but the handoff of mobile nodes causes latency, which affects the overall performance of the network. The handover delay in Mobile IPv6 is caused by three main factors; the movement detection delay, the new CoA Autoconfiguration delay and the delay caused by the registration of the new CoA. This delay causes packets loss and signaling load, and makes the MN isolated for a while. Currently, there are many protocols proposed to reduce the handover’s delay in Mobile IPv6 by reducing the affects of one of the factors that causing the delay, but none of them was able to reduce the new CoA Autoconfiguration delay effectively. The main objective of this thesis is to reduce the delay of the handover process in Mobile IPv6 by reducing the DAD delay, which will result in the reduction the new CoA autoconfiguration delay. The development of a new IPv6 simulator is another main contribution of this Thesis. This simulator includes all protocols needed to provide a complete environment to test the newly proposed algorithm and compare its performance with the performance basic Mobile IPv6 handover algorithm. The results have shown that our proposed algorithm has significantly reduced the delay of the handover process in the Mobile IPv6 protocol.
