    To support real-time multimedia services in UMTS all-IP network, Third-Generation Partnership Project TR 25.936 proposed two approaches to support real-time serving radio network controller (SRNC) switching, which require packet duplication during SRNC relocation. These approaches significantly consume extra system resources. This paper proposes the fast SRNC relocation (FSR) approach that does no... View full abstract»

    Handoff is the process during which a mobile node (MN) needs to change its connectivity point to the wireless internetwork from one access node (AN) to another during an ongoing communication. If MNs are allowed to have two or more simultaneous connections to the internetwork through different ANs, then the handoff is said to be soft; otherwise, it is said to be hard. Traditionally, during forward... View full abstract»

    The increasing popularity of IEEE 802.11-based wireless local area networks (LANs) lends them credibility as a viable alternative to third-generation (3G) wireless technologies. Even though wireless LANs support much higher channel bandwidth than 3G networks, their network-layer handoff latency is still too high to be usable for interactive multimedia applications such as voice over IP or video st...

    Supporting transmission of stream media over wireless mobile networks is often difficult because packets may be lost due to the rerouting of packets during handoff, and also because bursts of packet loss may occur during handoff due to the disparity in the amount of available bandwidth among different cells. In this paper, we propose an end-to-end multipath handoff scheme that provides smooth hand... View full abstract»

    One of the major challenges for the wireless network design is the efficient mobility management, which can be addressed globally (macromobility) and locally (micromobility). Mobile Internet protocol (IP) is a commonly accepted standard to address global mobility of mobile hosts (MHs). It requires the MHs to register with the home agents (HAs) whenever their care-of addresses change. However, such... View full abstract»

    Handover performance is very important when evaluating IP mobility protocols. If not performed efficiently, handover delays, jitters, and packet loss directly impact application performance. We propose a new architecture for providing efficient handover, while being able to coexist with other protocols. We propose a paradigm for multicast-based micromobility (M&M), where a visiting mobile is assig... View full abstract»

    Mobility management and quality-of-service (QoS) provisioning are the important tasks on the future development of wireless networks. The high host mobility makes these tasks more challenging. In this paper, we propose an architecture which supports both mobility and QoS management in Internet protocol (IP)-based wireless networks. In mobility management, the fast handoff, which the packets are fo... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose a new call admission control scheme called dual threshold bandwidth reservation, or DTBR scheme. The main novelty is that it builds upon a complete sharing approach, in which the channels in each cell are shared among the different traffic types and multiple thresholds are used to meet the specific quality-of-service (QoS) requirements. We present a detailed comparative s... View full abstract»

  • A flow rejection algorithm for QoS maintenance in a variable bandwidth wireless IP environment

    A flow rejection algorithm for the dynamic resource reservation protocol (dRSVP) protocol is proposed. dRSVP is an enhanced version of RSVP, aiming at providing dynamic quality-of-service (QoS) support in a variable bandwidth environment (e.g., wireless) through guarantees of ranges of bandwidth instead of specific values. Flow rejection occurs when the channel quality decreases to a level that ev... View full abstract»

    The current stream control transmission protocol (SCTP) does not work well over lossy links. To make SCTP congestion control algorithms robust in lossy networks, the paper first introduces a fine-tuned explicit congestion notification (ECN) mechanism for SCTP in such environment, and then discusses the ECN-D SCTP that can differentiate noncongestion losses from congestion losses. We identify the o... View full abstract»

    Data striping across multiple network interfaces and its applications to mobile environments was recently investigated (Phatak and Goff, 2002). Therein, a network-layer Internet protocol (IP)-in-IP encapsulation mechanism was proposed to aggregate the bandwidth of multiple network paths by striping a single transport layer [transmission control protocol (TCP)] connection across them. The analysis ... View full abstract»

    Improving the performance of the transmission control protocol (TCP) in wireless Internet protocol (IP) communications has been an active research area. The performance degradation of TCP in wireless and wired-wireless hybrid networks is mainly due to its lack of the ability to differentiate the packet losses caused by network congestions from the losses caused by wireless link errors.

    Transmission control protocol (TCP), a widely used transport protocol performs well over the traditional network which is constructed by purely wired links. As wireless access networks are growing rapidly, the wired/wireless mixed internetwork, a heterogeneous environment will get wide deployment in the next-generation ALL-IP wireless networks.

    Transmission control protocol (TCP) performance enhancement proxy (PEP) mechanisms have been proposed, and in some cases widely deployed, to improve TCP performance in all-Internet protocol (IP) wireless networks. However, this technique is conflicted with IP-security (IPsec)-a standard IP security protocol that will make inroad into wireless networks. This paper analyzes the fundamental problem b...
