Free registration required

Executive Summary

Convergence is a key design aspect for next generation networks. Developing a general mobility management model is an important requirement for the integrated mobile networks. This paper begins with a survey of mobility management concept. Based on the analysis and comparison, the authors present a conceptual explanation of mobility management layer for mobility and its management. An index structure framework to analyze host mobility supports for integrated mobile networks is proposed in this paper. The framework investigates the previous methods for mobility model analysis, and builds a general model to characterize and unify different mobility management schemes into an index structure.
