Mobile connectivity is becoming ubiquitous for voice, video, and data. Consumers expect to be able to get access to such content not only on their standard or smart (connected) TV, but also on their smartphones, portable media players (PMPs), and tablets. This chapter focuses mostly on MIPv6, an overview of the approach and capabilities afforded by MIPv6 is provided. MIPv6 allows nodes to remain reachable while moving around in the IPv6 Internet: it enables a device to change its attachment point to the Internet without losing higher-layer functionality through the use of tunneling between it and a designated home agent (HA).
