A main issue in all-IP networks is how to support fast mobility coupled with a fast re-reservation of resources during and after the handoff. The Mobile IP Fast Authentication Protocol (MIFA) minimizes the handoff latency and provides seamless mobility. However, it does not support resource reservation. The ReSource reserVation Protocol (RSVP) reserves resources on a certain path of routers. However, it does not support mobility. In this paper we introduce a new proposal to support seamless mobility and QoS in IP networks. Our proposal integrates RSVP and MIFA with each other. A new object called mobility object is added to RSVP messages. MIFA messages are encapsulated in this object.
