Abstract: This paper has proposes a new kind of Anycast communication model in a mobile IPv6 network. In this model, each mobile node has only one permanent address – the home address, and when a mobile node moves to a foreign area it does not need to register itself with its home agent or build a tunnel to transfer data packets, or in route optimisation it does not need to send an address-binding message to clients. In addition, this model can perform IPSec. The experimental data in an IPv6 simulation indicate that the performance of an Anycast service acquired in this model is better than the one in the existing model.

Keywords: IPv6; anycast communications; mobile IP; home address; mobile networks; mobile communications; modelling.
