Internet of Things (IoT) devices, which have different characteristics in mobility and communication patterns from traditional mobile devices such as cellular phones, have come into existence as a new type of mobile devices. A strict mobility management scheme for providing highly mobile devices with seamless access is over-engineered for IoT devices' mobility management. We revisit current mobility management schemes for wireless mobile networks based on identifier/locator separation. In this paper, we focus on IoT communication patterns, and propose a new routing-based mobility scheme for them. Our scheme adopts routing information aggregation scheme using the Bloom Filter as a data structure to store routing information. We clarify the effectiveness of our scheme in IoT environments with a large number of IoT devices, and discuss its deployment issues.
