Current general purpose mobility solutions like Mobile-IP involve multiple router-crossings even when the mobile host moves within an intranet from one subnet of a router to another. An environment consisting of a large number of mobile hosts would congest the router causing hosts to experience high latency and jitter. This paper presents a mechanism to eliminate multiple router-crossings in a mobile intranet, which reduces the load on the routers and the hand-off and data latency at the mobile hosts.
