Summary: IEEE Sarnoff Symposium 2007, Princeton, New Jersey, Apr 30-May 2, 2007 1
Abstract--In this paper, options for providing seamless service
delivery to mobile terminals via heterogeneous radio access
networks are considered. Despite its current popularity, the
Mobile IP solution for mobility management of mobile hosts is
discounted due to problems associated with introducing the
required network infrastructure and poor handover performance.
Rather, the solution described here comprises of a number of key
technologies working together. More specifically, the paper
argues that the most appropriate solution comprises of the
following: adaptive applications, an abstraction layer between
application and transport layer, an intelligent transport layer
with multi-homing and multi-path support and a means to obtain
current state information about each of the available access
networks. While work has been ongoing on each of these
individual components little has been done to address how they
can all be integrated and consider how they may perform in the
context of different radio access technologies, potentially operated
by different entities. This paper attempts to address some of these
issues.
