Paging extensions for Mobile Internet Protocol (P-MIP) decreases only the number of registration, but it does not much improve the method of registration, which still gives rise to a lot of lost packets and long handoff latency, and may also waste the data buffering and time during registration. In the active state, P-MIP behaves in the same way as Mobile Internet Protocol (MIP), thus, in this state, the packet loss rate of P-MIP is the same as that of MIP. However, the packet loss rate of P-MIP is lower than that of MIP, when changing from idle state to active state, because P-MIP buffers packets at the registered FA. We propose an improvement method for the registration delay, while the mobile node is entering the active state to decrease the mobile node waiting time for data packets. The proposed method can reduce the requirement of data buffering and also improve the method of registration to decrease lost packets and handoff latency when the mobile node moves across the cell in the same paging area during active state.
