Mobile IPv4 and IPv6 Problems and Implementation Mobile IPv4 and IPv6 are the future of mobile communications wirelessly and can help greatly in the infrastructure and combination of mobile systems and internet. This usage of IP addresses in mobile would increase the need for implementation of IPv6 as the new standard to replace IPv4 and increase the number of available addresses. However IP based mobile isn’t perfect and has its own host of problems and those will be discussed as well later as well as possible fixes in short and long term to these problems. The main need to implement mobile IP is the fact that it can support more users and keep those users closer to the internet, meaning that the internet is integrated into the system.…show more content…
This can be a problem as more devices connect to and use a network the more data they use and can cause a network to become congested. A solution to reduce congestion is to use many small wireless receivers within the range of a large tower to spread out the devices upon smaller more confined networks when within cities and high density areas. And simply using long range low capacity towers when in the country side and places where fewer devices will be on a network at any given time, this is a combination of macro cells and micro cells to ensure network stability. At layer 2 comes the need to differentiate between devices on the network and needs a standard to work in place usually used at layer 2 in IP based communications over the internet is Ethernet II and uses MAC addresses differentiating between devices by using a hexadecimal format. This is done by burning a unique ID into a network card by a manufacturer, however rather than the normal Wi-Fi a better option for long range communications is WiMAX. The differences in Wi-Fi and WiMAX is that WiMAX has an effective distance of up to 90km while Wi-Fi only has a range of up to 100m and data rates on WiMAX is up to 40mbps compared to Wi-Fi with up to 54mbps. Next layer 3 the Network layer is where the Internet Protocol (IP) will take place and be defined. There are two options to use here IPv4 or IPv6.
