The ping-pong type of movement is a typical motion manner in mobile IPv6 networks, which will bring frequent handovers and thus increase signaling burden. On the other hand, reducing handover delay in this case seems to be more significant. In this paper we propose a fast seamless handover scheme for the ping-pong type of movement as an extension to the hierarchical mobile IPv6. Based on the simulation results, it can be observed that, by setting the reservation active flag (RAF) and the offline count down timer (CDT), the scheme significantly reduces QoS signaling cost and handover delay. Furthermore, the simulations work out an optimized CDT for acquiring better cost performance of resource reservation.
