The NEMO (NEtwork MObility) protocol, as normalized by IETF, allows a transparent movement of a whole IPv6 network. This mobile network can thus attach to different points in the Internet without losing TCP/IP connectivity of its mobile nodes. In this paper we briefly describe the NEMO protocol and present a simple architecture deployed to test its main functionalities. We also discuss the results obtained thus far with the use of popular TCP and UDP based applications in a mobile environment: video streaming transfer, remote access using SSH and FTP file transfer.
