The continuation of an active call or service is one of the vital metrics for assessing the performance of a wireless communication system. The handover process is inevitable when the Mobile node is roaming across the networks. When a mobile node is moving from home access point to another access point, handover with low latency and minimum packet loss is required in order to get better Quality of Service (QoS) for IP applications such as Voice over IP (VoIP), video conferencing, live streaming in mobiles etc. In this paper, Modified Reactive Fast Handover for Mobile IPv6 is used to reduce handover latency and packet loss, which involves packet buffering at the Correspondent Node (CN). Network Simulator version 2 (NS-2) is used under ubuntu operating system as simulation tool for the proposed scheme.
