In this paper, we propose a new mobility management network called i-FP, which will be used for smart factories. i-FP was created to address existing local mobility management issues in legacy frameworks. To allow MNs (Mobile Node) to move from one domain to another, i-FP uses the three network entities of LFA (Local Factory Anchor), FAG (Factory Access Gateway), and MN as an extension concept of the PMIPv6. In i-FP, the three network entities can reduce the handover latency of the MN. In addition, i-FP uses an IP header swapping mechanism to avoid traffic overhead and improve network throughput. To evaluate the performance of i-FP, we measure and evaluate the three methods by measuring the new frameworks i-FP, HMIPv6 and PMIPv6, which are legacy protocols for local mobility management. Through the entire analysis, i-FP shows superior performance to other network methods used in smart factories.
