—The Mobile Plane Architecture (MPA) is a network architecture that provides micro-mobility in a network-centric way, that is, the burden of supporting micro-mobility is placed on the network and not on the mobile nodes. MPA employs an overlay network above an IPv4 or IPv6 transport network in order to direct traffic to the mobile nodes. The overlay network(More)
Micro-mobility protocols aim to improve localized mobility by reducing the handover overheads. In this paper we present the Mobility Plane Architecture (MPA). This architecture was designed to support micro-mobility in standard IP or MPLS/GMPLS networks in a network-centric way, that is, the burden demanded by micro-mobility is placed on the network, not on(More)
—This paper presents the design and implementation of the Mobility Plane Architecture (MPA). MPA is a network architecture that provides micro-mobility in a network-centric way, that is, the burden of supporting micro-mobility is placed on the network and not on the mobile nodes. The implementation employs RSVP-TE to establish IP/IP and MPLS(More)
– This article proposes a Traffic Engineering element for the micromobility architecture called MPA (Mobility Plane Architecture) [6]. The proposal consists in composition of intelligent agents capable to monitor and to act in the tunnels of MPA's overlay network in order to avoid congestion on the exiting queues of network interfaces. The manner of(More)
