In future mobile systems, the end-terminals will be considerably more diverse than nowadays, and the users will have a greater choice of access technologies, offering different QoS, cost, security and so on. A mobile terminal equipped with multiple interfaces can achieve a much higher bandwidth by aggregating the bandwidth offered by the individual networks. In this paper, we present a system based on Mobile IPv6 that achieves the above objectives. We will discuss in detail the architectural requirements and algorithms that are needed to support the above system. We also extended our proposed scheme to support even if the correspondent node also has multiple interfaces. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can uniformly distribute data packets among multiple channels and deliver the packets perfectly in order at receiver to achieve bandwidth aggregation.
