The main subject of my MSc thesis is a HIP based network mobility implementation which is analyzed in several scenarios focusing on a special network model implemented in INET/OMNeT++ simulation framework where handover latency of moving networks is significantly reduced by preparing for upcoming handover events before the actual handover situation occurs. This is achieved with the help of so called smart gateways which change messages in order to prepare for uninterrupted handing over and reception of the mobile router. The name of the implementation indicates that it is based on Host Identity Protocol (HIP) but more precisely it is based a HIP NEMO implementation which was created by me during my BSc studies. Therefore I suggest reading my BSc thesis with the same title before reading this MSc thesis. Although I introduce my HIP NEMO implementation but it is not as detailed as it is in my previous work.

This study consists of the following parts. In the first part I briefly introduce HIP, while in the second part I talk about a NEMO BS implementation which was developed at TU University Dortmund. In the third part I introduce my HIP NEMO implementation which is followed with the introduction of the smart gateway (HIP SmGw) scenarios where my HIP based, smart gateway implementation optimizes mobile operations. Last but not least I compare the above mentioned three implementations by their measurement results.
