The fast handover protocol adopted in a IPv6 hierarchical structure provides a seamless handover in wireless IP networks by minimizing the handover latency. To reduce the handover latency, the fast handover uses anticipation based on layer 2 trigger. Nonetheless, a mobile node can still lose its connection with the old link during the fast handover procedures. Accordingly, this paper analyzes the handover latency and packet delivery costs associated with fast handover failure cases based on a timing diagram.
