Economically Viable Support for Internet Mobility
The support for mobility is a major requirement for the future Internet. Although several mobility solutions have been proposed, none of them has been largely deployed, mostly because they are not economically viable. The authors propose a business oriented mobility framework - Mobility Support Service (MSS) to be offered as a value-added service to paying mobile customers. MSS uses IDentifiers (IDs) to locate the nodes and network addresses as points of attachment for the nodes. MSS is a scalable distributed service. MSS does not require changes in existing network architecture nor services.
