One interesting problem is the delay imposed upon mobile receivers when switching between wireless cells. We provide a solution to this in the form of an extension of Mobile IP's handoff algorithm. Our solution involves the exploitation of mobility prediction to predict a mobile terminal's future location based on its previous history (i.e. the last cell that it has been in) and for the media stream to be already present and cached by next cells base station ready for receiving by the mobile device.
