Seamless Session Mobility Scheme in Heterogeneous Wireless Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The next generation wireless communication system will likely be heterogeneous networks, as various technologies can be integrated on heterogeneous networks. A mobile multiple-mode device can easily access the Internet through different wireless interfaces. The mobile multiple-mode device thus could switch to different access points to maintain the robustness of the connection when it can acquire more resources from other heterogeneous wireless networks. The mobile multiple-mode device therefore needs to face the handover problem in such environment. This paper introduces Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based cross-layer scheme to support seamless handover scheme over heterogeneous networks. The proposed scheme consists of a battery lifetime-based handover policy and cross-layer fast handover scheme, called the SIP-based mobile Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SmSCTP).
