Mobile IPv6 with Linux
The Internet Protocol, merged nets into the global metanet we called the Internet. IP provided connectivity that is independent on the underlying hardware and the served applications. The homogeneous addressing of IP and its simplicity enabled it to scale. MIP's goal is to bring to mobility the merits IP brought to connectivity. This means mobility that can scale to the size of the Internet, is application-independent and is available across heterogeneous wired and wireless access technologies. MIPL provides a free and flexible platform for you to participate in pursuing that vision. Happy and seamless roaming!

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
