With the ever increasing use of portable and hand held devices for voice and data transfer, there is a growing expectation to access information anytime, anywhere. Today there are different technologies providing access to voice, data, and video. These need to be converged in all Internet protocol (IP) based network. Next generation telecom networks will be having convergence of voice and data traffic and use of IP based mobility solutions. Mobile IP is a TCP/IP-based protocol that has been standardized by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) for supporting mobility. Mobile IP is part of both IPv4 and IPv6 standards. Mobile IP works at network layer (layer 3), influencing the routing of packets and can easily handle mobility among different media. This chapter discusses different technical operations involved in Mobile IPv4 and Mobile IPv6 and compares them.
