Mobile multi-access IP: a proposal for mobile multi-access management in future wireless IP networks

Altuntas, S
Baykal, Buyurman
As the wireless networking technologies advance rapidly, providing mobile users with roaming freely in heterogeneous wireless access domains, the need for multi-access arises. This paper introduces the Mobile Multi-Access Management Architecture (MMA-IP) for IP-based future wireless networks. MMA-IP enables mobile users to utilize multiple access domains synchronously and to switch between different access domains. In order to handle multi-access operations, MMA-IP defines a new special mobility agent, called Multi-Access Agent (MAA). The MAA is the first point for incoming packets destined to the mobile node. Upon reception of these packets, MAA routes them via different access domains according to the mobile's preferences. MMA-IP allows mobile nodes to indicate their preferences in the form of preference messages and these preferences are stored in MAA for use in multi-access decisions. It is also noted that this concept paper intends to shed light on future improvements on IP in 4G networks.


Energy-aware routing algorithms for wireless ad hoc networks with heterogeneous power supplies
Vazifehdan, Javad; Prasad, R. Venkatesha; Onur, Ertan; Niemegeers, Ignas (Elsevier BV, 2011-10-27)
Although many energy-aware routing schemes have been proposed for wireless ad hoc networks, they are not optimized for networks with heterogeneous power supplies, where nodes may run on battery or be connected to the mains (grid network). In this paper, we propose several energy-aware routing algorithms for such ad hoc networks. The proposed algorithms feature directing the traffic load dynamically towards mains-powered devices keeping the hop count of selected routes minimal. We unify these algorithms into...
Frame-counter scheduler: A novel QoS scheduler for real-time traffic
Schmidt, Şenan Ece (Elsevier BV, 2006-08-04)
Real-time traffic communication has Quality of Service (QoS) requirements such as end-to-end bandwidth and delay guarantees.
A new scalable service discipline for real-time traffic: The framed-deadline scheduler
Schmidt, Şenan Ece (Elsevier BV, 2007-03-26)
Qulaity of Service (Qos) support in a scalable and low-complexity fashion is important in high-speed networks carrying real-time traffic. There are service disciplines that can provide end-to-end bandwidth and delay guarantees. However, they are designed to operate with expensive output quenching switches or with combined input-output queuing (CIOQ) switches that require very complicated fabric work with a CIOQ packet switch to provide the same end-to-end QoS guarantees as service disciplines that only work...
UAVs assessment in software-defined IoT networks: An overview
Al-Turjman, Fadi; Abujubbeh, Mohammad; Malekloo, Arman; Mostarda, Leonardo (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-15)
The technological advancements in the ubiquitous IoT era and the ever-growing desire of communities to enforce smart cities with security and safety of user data as their priority, mini Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), or drones, are perceived as a tool for raising living standards by meeting the requirements of societies. Traditionally in UAV communication links, meshed ad hoc networks were among the first options of connectivity. However, the increased demand for deploying multi-UAV networks necessitates ...
How many sensors for an acceptable breach detection probability?
Onur, Ertan; Delic, H (Elsevier BV, 2006-01-10)
Determining the required number of sensors to be deployed is a critical decision for surveillance wireless sensor networks. In this paper, we discuss the trade-off between the number of sensors and the breach detection probability considering the effects of sensor parameters. We present the weakest breach path problem formulation and provide a solution by utilizing the Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm. We propose a method to determine the required number of sensors to be deployed and to gain insight about...
