Mobile IPv6 and SIP are protocols designed to support different types of mobility. Mobile IPv6 has been used to support mobility in IP networks and SIP has been used for voice over IP applications. It is the signalling protocol of the IP multimedia subsystem (IMS). In this paper both protocols have been simulated and compared in order to observe their performance for voice over IP (VoIP) applications. In this paper the architectures proposed by researchers in order to combine mobile IPv6 and SIP have also been investigated and compared to analyse their advantages and disadvantages. A network scenario, running mobile IPv6 and SIP for IMS, has also been simulated in order to evaluate the performance offered by the two protocols and to compare them with the results from the simulation of the pure mobile IPv6 and SIP architectures. The comparison shows that the combined scenario offers better performance similar to the one obtained using only mobile IPv6 with route optimization. The scenario simulated was also compared with the integrated architectures for mobile IPv6 and SIP that were investigated.
