— This paper is addressed to develop a simulation node model to support the Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) protocol. The PMIPv6 related process node models were developed based on the Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) process models by using simulation software, such as pmipv6_pmn.pr.m, pmipv6_mgr.pr.m and pmipv6_ra_gtwy.pr.m. In order to verify the developed process models, the several simulation scenarios were designed and constructed under the various traffic environments. In this paper, we provided two simulation scenarios: one is that the basic terminology of PMIPv6 network and the other is that comparison performance between MIPv6 and PMIPv6 network. From the simulation results can be seen, the Local Mobility Anchor (LMA) manages and intercepts all data packets from CN to proxy_MN, and each Mobile Access Gateway (MAG) encapsulates and decapsulates all data packets from LMA or proxy_MN. Moreover, the packet network delay presented higher in MIPv6 scenario than in PMIPv6 network. In wireless Local Area Network (LAN) load evaluation performance, the packet size of PMIPv6 is lower than that of the MIPv6 by outer IPv6 header length in 40 bytes. It can be concluded that the developed simulation models for PMIPv6 are logically correct and very useful to understand the fundamental features of mobility management in future networks.
