Lecture 04: Mobile Networking (I) -- Mobile IP

January 29, 2001


For the next couple lectures, we will discuss mobile networking. In this lecture, we will first study Mobile-IP in details.

You should read the paper 1 and 2 in the required paper section before coming to class. The first paper is an easy tutorial on Mobile-IP and it gives you a quick idea on the basic concept. Then, the second paper will fill you in with lots of details and advanced topics -- you should read this one very carefully.
