Summary: 
On the Internet, two different IP protocols are deployed such as IPv4 and IPv6. The Mobile Router uses the basic NEMO protocol which is IPv6 protocol specific. During the early period of time that IPv6 transition is occurring it is very likely that a Mobile Router will move to an IPv4 only access network. When this occurs the Mobile Router will no longer be able to operate using the basic NEMO protocol. There has already been some earlier work to provide IPv6 capability over an IPv4 access network for a Mobile Router. This paper provides a capability by to maintain IPv6 connectivity for the Mobile Router via its Home Agent with IPv4-in-IPv6 encapsulation with no special boxes to be deployed elsewhere in the network.
