	  abstract     = {This paper proposes a fast tree join scheme to provide
seamless multicast handover in the mobile networks based on the Fast
Mobile IPv6 (FMIPv6). In the existing FMIPv6-based multicast
handover scheme, the bi-directional tunnelling or the remote
subscription is employed with the packet forwarding from the previous
access router (AR) to the new AR. In general, the remote subscription
approach is preferred to the bi-directional tunnelling one, since in the
remote subscription scheme we can exploit an optimized multicast
path from a multicast source to many mobile receivers. However, in
the remote subscription scheme, if the tree joining operation takes a
long time, the amount of data packets to be forwarded and buffered for
multicast handover will increase, and thus the corresponding buffer
may overflow, which results in severe packet losses. In order to reduce
these costs associated with packet forwarding and buffering, this paper
proposes the fast join to multicast tree, in which the new AR will join
the multicast tree as fast as possible, so that the new multicast data
packets can also arrive at the new AR, by which the packet forwarding
and buffering costs can be reduced. From numerical analysis, it is
shown that the proposed scheme can give better performance than the
existing FMIPv6-based multicast handover schemes in terms of the
multicast packet delivery costs.},
