The purpose of this research was to improve the communication technology for mobile computing devices. It focused on increasing the speed and reliability of data, voice, and video transmissions while away from a home or office and mobile. A new mobility protocol is proposed building on the existing mobile Internet protocol (Mobile IP). This new protocol used the concept of port redirection to route traffic to a mobile node and eliminated the need for tunneling. The enhanced protocol was designed to more efficiently use network resources, improve performance, and increase scalability. The analysis shows that with the exception of the first packet exchanged, the delay of the proposed protocol was similar to that of the current mobile IP protocol, and the amount of overhead required was decreased when compared to mobile IP as the number of packets exchanged increased. This occurred because of a one-time overhead in the new protocol compared to an overhead with every tunneled packet in mobile IP.
