This document proposes an enhanced handover scheme on the Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) with bicasting for IP handover (B-PMIPv6). In B- PMIPv6, a mobile node (MN) performs binding update to Local Mobility Anchor (LMA) in advance, and then the LMA begins the bicasting of data packets to the new Mobile Access Gateway (N-MAG) as well as the previous MAG (P-MAG). The B-PMIPv6 minimizes the possible packet losses and handover latency during handover.
