Mobility in a wireless Internet
Chapter three of Mobile IPv6 by Hesham Soliman describes the operation of Mobile IPv6, starting with the role of each element: the mobile node, the correspondent node, and the home agent. It also discusses the various failure cases for the mobile node, correspondent node, and home agent; and how the protocol can cope with each one. Finally, the knowledge gained in this chapter can be used to build simplified flowcharts that describe the mobile and correspondent nodes' operations.
