Video is a major challenge for the future mobile Internet as it is foreseen to account for close to 64% percent of consumer mobile traffic by 2013. However, the current Internet, and in particular the mobile Internet, was not designed with video requirements in mind and, as a consequence, its architecture is very inefficient when handling this type of traffic. This paper presents a novel mobility architecture inspired by the Distributed Mobility Management paradigm, capable of coping with the future video traffic demands, in a distributed and more scalable way. In the proposed solution, mobility support services are spread among several nodes at the edge of the network, thus realizing a flatter architecture and pushing services closer to the terminals. Our approach overcomes some of the major limitations of centralized IP mobility management solutions, by extending existing standard protocols.
