Abstract—Wireless Communications have increased rapidly in recent years. Wireless LAN, Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA), Universal Mobile Tele-Communication System (UMTS), GPRS (General Packet Radio Service), Bluetooth, 3G (Third Generation networks), and GPS (Global Positioning System), etc., are common wireless technologies that are commercially available. Internet together with small hosts in the form of laptop, mobile phones, etc., has increased the demand of mobility support for moving nodes as when nodes move from one network to another the Internet connectivity should be maintained during handover. In this paper, various protocols for mobility management have been reviewed. Network layer protocols like Mobile IP and its variants and transport layer protocol mSCTP are compared. Various issues regarding mSCTP handover have been investigated like packet reordering, throughput, multi-path transfer, handover in case of fast moving nodes so that optimal handover can be achieved.
