This paper proposes a fully-integrated SIP + HCoP-B architecture to provide efficient mobility management of the nested mobile network. It achieves the following merits, which are rare in the literature. First, it reduces network deployment costs by only equipping an integrated SIP mobile server. Second, it supports both SIP-based and non-SIP-based applications. Third, by adopting the analytical model proposed in Mohanty and Akyildiz (2007) [19], mathematical analyses are provided to investigate six performance metrics of SIP + HCoP-B and the other four well-known SIP's over NEMO schemes over the error-prone wireless link. Finally, it is shown that SIP + HCoP-B outperforms these four traditional schemes through intensive simulations.
