    Mobile IP protocols use a correspondent registration
    procedure between a Mobile Node (MN) and its Correspondent
    Nodes (CNs) to maintain a valid and up-to-date binding
    association between MN’s home address and its current care-ofaddress
    whenever a handover occurs. This procedure plays a key
    role in optimizing the routing path between the two parties by
    avoiding any kind of dog-leg routing across the home network or
    the previous visited network. However, such a procedure reveals
    its inefficiency in multicast communication as multicast sources
    do not need to know the identity of multicast receivers and to
    interfere with their mobility events. Without an additional
    intelligence on Mobile IP entities to assess the nature of the
    communication session established with a CN, such behavior
    introduces an extra processing and inefficient use of the network
    resources for both CN and MN. In an attempt to solve these
    problems, we propose a new adaptive solution to enhance Mobile
    IP protocols (Mobile IPv4, Mobile IPv6, and Moving Network).
    In this regard, we extend Mobile IP specifications with two new
    registration schemes: dynamic address update and non-dynamic
    address update in response to the multicasting nature of CN.
    With these two new schemes, MN and their mobility agents will
    be able to sense their communications and distinguish between
    multicast and unicast sources and therefore block sending
    binding information to multicast sources. We evaluate our
    solution by quantifying analytically the gain of the binding
    update messages that could be avoided in different mobility management scenarios.
