ALSO CALLED: IPng, IP Next Generation
DEFINITION: Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) is a protocol developed as a subset of Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) to support mobile connections. MIPv6 is an update of the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) Mobile IP standard (RFC 2002) designed to authenticate mobile devices (known as mobile nodes) using IPv6 addresses. In traditional IP routing, IP addresses represent a topology. Routing mechanisms rely on the  …

IPAM Intelligence: All Road Leads To Proteus
sponsored by BlueCat
WHITE PAPER: As IPAM evolves from a simple marriage between DNS and DHCP services, its definition cannot be limited to simply the benefits derived from dynamically linking DNS and DHCP functionality together. IPAM transcends this marriage to include features and functions shaped by this new requirement in an age of dynamic IP address data.

IPV6 DEFINITION (continued): …  assumption that each network node will always have the same point of attachment to the Internet, and that each node's IP address identifies the network link where it is connected. In this routing scheme, if you disconnect a mobile device from the Internet and want to reconnect through a different network, you have to configure the device with a new IP address, and the appropriate netmask and default router. Otherwise, routing protocols have no means of delivering datagrams (packets), because the device's network address doesn't contain the necessary information about the node's network point of …
