    With the increasing number of wireless devices, the importance of mobility management in future mobile networks is growing. Traditional mobility management approaches are based on client/server paradigms, and suffer from their well-known shortcomings (single point of failure, congestion, bottlenecks). With the success of P2P for file sharing applications, we believe that its benefits can be brough... View full abstract»

    Access authentication is very important for deploying mobile IPv6 networks. In this paper, we design a two-level hierarchical identity-based signature scheme, based on which we propose a new hierarchical authentication scheme for mobile IPv6 networks. Our solution adopts multi-level network access identifier (NAI) as public key, which simplifies key management in wireless mobile environment. The h... View full abstract»

    Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) protocol was released by IETF in 2004. Conformance testing is necessary to accelerate MIPv6 practicality. Formal description and test generation is the key issue in conformance testing. In order to describe and test MIPv6, we define finite state machine (FSM) and multi-node finite state machine (MN-FSM). We propose the method of hierarchical protocol description. MIPv6 is divid... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (120 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Privacy and security are important features for the future mobile wireless Internet since users expect a privacy level comparable to that of today's cellular networks. Separating identifiers from locators is a current practice in today's new network protocols and is a small step on the right direction. However, the separation must be maintained in the presence of an intruder who eavesdrops or mani... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (321 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Employing multiple channels in wireless multi-hop networks is regarded as an effective approach to increasing network capacity. However, existing routing protocols may not be able to properly utilize the advantages of multiple channels in such networks. In this paper, we focus on IEEE 802.11-based wireless mesh networks with stationary nodes, such as wireless backhaul networks and community wirele... View full abstract»

    The multiparty nature of multicast applications presents new challenges for Mobile IP users. Unfortunately, when a multicast receiver is mobile, it will experience additional delay in receiving multicast packets due to handover delay, join latency, and increased propagation delay to the new location. In this paper we propose a new solution to avoid the multicast triangle routing problem inside the... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (331 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The aggregate capacity of wireless mesh networks can be increased by the use of multiple channels. Stationary wireless routers are equipped with multiple network interface cards (NICs). Each NIC is assigned with a distinct frequency channel. In this paper, we formulate the Joint Optimal Channel Assignment and Congestion Control (JOCAC) as a decentralized utility maximization problem with constrain... View full abstract»

    We consider the problem of supporting VoIP calls over a wireless mesh network. We particularly consider the call admission control (CAC) decision problem for VoIP calls on a mesh network. The goal of the call admission decision is to maintain the quality of VoIP calls as given by the R-score measure. In this work, we define a notion of interference capacity model that can be efficiently used to de... View full abstract»

    Future mobile handsets will often be multi-mode and may include both wireless LAN (WLAN) and cellular air interfaces. When this type of handset roams in and out of WLAN coverage, connections must be transferred to the new network point of attachment. In order to support real-time wireless services, seamless vertical handoff is an essential requirement. In this paper we propose the use of ad hoc re... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we consider the problem of association of wireless stations (STAs) with an access network served by a wireless local area network (WLAN) and a 3G cellular network. There is a set of WLAN Access Points (APs) and a set of 3G Base Stations (BSs) and a number of STAs each of which needs to be associated with one of the APs or one of the BSs. We concentrate on downlink bulk elastic trans... View full abstract»

    Mobile terminals measurements capabilities are strong limitations that may impede seamless handover from UMTS to WLAN. In this article, we propose an inter-system handover method that does not require in-line measurements on WLAN. It identifies the most probable WLAN Access Point for handover, from coverage point of view, depending on UMTS signal measurements and on a handover probability database... View full abstract»

    The integration of the wireless LAN technology in mobile devices such as cellular phones or PDAs has become a user need due to its popularity for providing high speed wireless Internet access at a low cost. Such devices though should meet users' expectations with regard to QoS, e.g., guarantee a reasonable voice quality when VoIP is used, and power saving efficiency, e.g., standby and calling time...

    In this paper we consider vertical handoff for dualmode (DM) cellular/WLAN handsets. When the handset roams out of WLAN coverage, the DM's cellular interface is used to maintain the call by anchoring it through a PSTN gateway/PBX. Soft handoff can be achieved in this case if the gateway supports basic conference bridging, since a new leg of the call can be established to the conference bridge whil... View full abstract»

    Supporting QoS for VoIP is a topic that clearly remain of importance. Existing QoS mechanisms for voice over IP need to be adapted. This is essentially due to the high dynamicity and variability of subjective voice quality perception, particularly in some critical conditions (ex. mobile networks). In this paper, we present an architecture, called "MOSQoS", that integrates subjective voice quality ... View full abstract»
