Mobility within a Control Zone

Inside a CZ, if a node moves from one place to another, it gathers new local topology information from the MN beacons it receives from its neighbours. Moreover, all its neighbours are aware of its presence as it periodically broadcasts an MN beacon. The neighbour information that MNs collect is also forwarded to the IN (through NU packets). Hence, the IN is also aware of the change in location.
