Maximum Entropy Based IP-Traffic Classification in Mobile Communication Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In order to maintain sufficient mobile communication network capacity for value added services, 3GPP has recently introduced an architecture called "SIPTO"(Selected IP Traffic Offload) to offload selected mobile IP traffic from the core network. This brings new challenge to on line traffic classification scheme needed to figure out the traffic which should be offloaded in real time. Although traffic classification methodologies have already been investigated in wired IP network, they are not applicable in mobile environment where high Bit Error Rates (BER) and temporary disconnections are observed due to hostile wireless channel conditions.
