Real-world solutions for Cisco IOS® Mobile IP configuration, troubleshooting, and management First book to address the practical application of Mobile IP in real-world environments Detailed case studies show how to apply Mobile IP in real-world networks Configuration examples demonstrate working implementations of the Cisco Mobile IP components Includes troubleshooting methodologies for common failures and best practicesThe Internet and mobile communications are defining how and when people access information, with cellular phones, PDAs, and laptops driving the need for "always-on" IP connectivity. One challenge to mobile data communication is moving data across different networks; the solution to this problem is a standards-based protocol: Mobile IP. Mobile IP is an open standard, defined by the IETF, that allows users to keep the same IP address, stay connected, and maintain ongoing applications while roaming between IP networks.Mobile IP Technology and Applications is the first book to address the practical application of Mobile IP in real-world environments. Cisco IOS® Mobile IP configuration, troubleshooting, and management are covered in depth and supported by real-world examples. Mobility solutions addressed in the book include enterprise campus wireless LAN and metropolitan mobility for both individual devices and whole networks. Each example is designed to teach configuration, management, and troubleshootingall of which will be directly applicable to users' daily needs.The book starts with an overview of mobility and wireless technology, including implementation issues. Next, Mobile IP is addressed, including operations, components, protocol, and more. The authors then delve into applying Mobile IP in real-world networks. Troubleshooting common failures and future developments are addressed, and each chapter concludes with a summary of best practices.
