A Customized IPv6 Header for Packet Transmission over a LAN


Article Preview

Header compression can effectively improve transmission efficiency, but existing header compression algorithm reduces the performance when operating over wireless links, because the differencing coding that the algorithm used does not adapt to packet over LAN. A new method for IPv6 header compression named is proposed, the compression is based on substitution and is not affected by packet loss. The method can significant improve the transmission performance over LAN.
