In this paper, we propose the fast handover method in mSCTP using FMIPv6. Using FMIPv6 as handover procedure in mSCTP, the performance of handover can be significantly improved. First, mSCTP can add new network address to the correspondent node quickly as FMIPv6 provides New Care of Address (CoA) without closing connection to current network. Second, mSCTP can determine when it has to change the primary IP address with the trigger from FMIPv6. This trigger indicates that the mobile node has completely joined the network of New Access Router (NAR) and confirms that the MN can receive data through the NAR. We present integrated handover procedures that maximizes the handover performance between mSCTP and FMIPv6. We implement the integration of mSCTP and FMIPv6 in our test bed and verify the operation of suggested handover procedures by analysis of the experimental result.
