Wireless technologies are rapidly evolving and the users are demanding the possibility of changing its point of attachment to the Internet (i.e Access Router) without breaking the IP communications. This can be achieved by using Mobile IPv6. However mobile clients must forwards its data packets addressed towards its home network through a special entity, the Home Agent (HA). This HA is a key point when considering the performance of Mobile IPv6-based networks.
