What is IFOM (IP Flow Mobility)?

IFOM is a procedure utilized in WiFi offload to permit particular traffic offload, permitting some traffic streams to navigate the LTE network while others cross the WiFi organization. IFOM is being indicated by means of 3GPP TS 23.261. IFOM utilizes an Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Request For Comments (RFC), Dual Stack Mobile IPv6 (DSMIPv6) (RFC-5555). Since IFOM depends on DSMIPv6, it is independent of the macro network flavor. It tends to be utilized for a green-field LTE deployment as well as a legacy GPRS packet core. IFOM gives synchronous connection to two substitute access organizations. This allows fine granularity of IP Flow mobility between access networks.
