The continuously increasing Internet coverage and its availability has give rise to an issue that was once considered not important to take into consideration. Today a number of applications use the Internet to de-liver time critical messages. The usage of wireless Access Points involves a considerable percentage to connect mobile devices to the Internet pro-vider. However, these relatively cheaper Internet Access Points have their own disadvantages as compared to the GSM and ADSL. The access points cover a very limited area and thus in order to cover a wider area multiple access points must needs to be installed. In other words, as the user moves he/she is supposed to switch between access points. Never-theless, the basic problem in such cases is involves packet loss during handover. In today’s technological advancements these issues, though very small, are no more insignificant but are required to be handled prop-erly. So protocols such as MobileIP, LISP, HOST have been proposed and are currently being used for such a purpose. Furthermore, in this thesis a mechanism to reduce such packet losses has been studied and proposed in relation to the SensibleThings Internet-of-things platform. A workaround solution known as Mobile DCXP has been proposed and implemented and comparisons with the existing system have been carried out. In addition, a generic solution has been discussed in detail and compared with the Mobile DCXP. However, the implementation of the generic solution has been deferred to the future. The concept of Mobile DCXP has been illustrated with proof-of-concept apps and an implementation of a simple Android Application known as IChat has been conduct. The IChat is a simple chat app that is used in the experi-ment to determine out the packet lost during handover and to carry out a comparison. Finally, based on the data collected from IChat, an evaluation of Mobile DCXP has been presented and a performance comparison with Mobile Proxy DCXP has been illustrated with charts. Furthermore, in the conclusion Mobile DCXP could minimize packet loss as compared to the existing system.
