The BRAIN project is investigating a broadband IP-based network solution to complement UMTS. For this to become a reality, both macro and micro-mobility functionalities have to be supported. While macro-mobility will be done by Mobile-IP, there are several proposals for supporting micro-mobility. The first section of this document will present the Mobile-IP protocol, together with its known problems and possible solutions. The second section will provide an initial comparison of recent proposals of micro-mobility protocols.
