This paper presents results, which have obtained by extensive simulations for Mobile IP (MIP) and Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) from the perspective of mobility support in wireless Internet. After illustrating the problem in the existing Mobile SCTP and SCTP over Mobile IP for diverse cases, we propose SCTP highly coupled with MIP for realizing seamless mobility. In this thesis we use ns2 with SCTP module to compare the throughput and end-to-end delay for packet transmission associated with the Mobile SCTP, SCTP over Mobile IP, and the proposed approach. Simulation results show that our proposed approaches achieve better performance than other proposals.
