Existing mobility support scheme like MIPv4 has the delay at data transfer and Triangle routing problem. This paper proposes the new mobility support scheme and method that can overcome the problem using MPLS LSP in Next Generation Network. The proposed scheme overcomes the problem by introducing the LMS(Location Management Server) managing the location of the mobile terminal and the MPLS LSP between FA for a tunneling. We shows on the mathematical analysis using the queuing theory that this proposed scheme is more superior to the existing method(MIP).
