Testing for handover performance based on Android Intelligent Mobile Equipment This paper reviewed the research on mobile IP technologies for improving handover performance. After making comparison between different test methods used in those researches, the Testing for Handover Performance based on Android Intelligent Mobile Equipment (THPAIME) is proposed. Based on the open-source project OAI PMIPv6, the platform for testing Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) is constructed. In our test, the program for sending data packets is running on personal computer and that of receiving data packets is running on Android intelligent mobile equipment. In fact, PC and Android smartphone serve as correspondent node (CN) and mobile node (MN) respectively. Test data collected by Androidsmartphone can be illustrated on the screen. Experiment results show that the scheme is superior to conventional methods in terms of complexity and operability.
