IETF has proposed an extension based on Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6), named as Network Mobility basic support protocol (NEMO-BSP), to support network mobility in IPv6 network. However, the NEMO-BSP inherits all the drawbacks of Mobile IPv6, such as inefficient routing path, high handover latency and high packet encapsulation overhead. To address these drawbacks of NEMO-BSP, this paper proposes a network mobility support scheme based a novel Locator/ID separation (LIDS) architecture, namely LIDS-NEMO. In LIDS-NEMO, Multiple Virtual Mapping (MVM) scheme is proposed to differentiate the intra-NEMO and inter-NEMO mobility. Besides, packets are transmitted through the most optimized route in LIDS-NEMO. The simulation results show that LIDS-NEMO reduces the signaling cost significantly when compared with NEMO-BSP and it will be a promising scheme to provide the network mobility in the Locator/ID separation context.
