The Ad hoc Multicast Routing protocol (AMRoute) presents a novel approach for robust IP Multicast in mobile ad hoc networks by exploiting user-multicast trees and dynamic logical cores. It creates a bidirectional, shared tree for data distribution using only group senders and receivers as tree nodes. Unicast tunnels are used as tree links to connect(More)
This paper investigates fast routing table lookup techniques, where the table is composed of hierarchical addresses such as those found in a national telephone network. The hierachical addresses provide important benefits in large networks; but existing fast routing table lookup technique, based on hardware such as Content Addressable Memory (CAM), work(More)

This paper describes a new methodology for protocol design, using incremental construction of the protocol from elements called “protocol boosters” on an as-needed basis. Protocol boosters allow: (1) dynamic protocol customization to heterogeneous environments, and (2) rapid protocol evolution. Unlike alternative adaptation approaches, such as link layer,(More)
This paper presents the design principles of Dynamic Service Negotiation Protocol (DSNP). DSNP is a protocol to negotiate the SLS (Service Level Specification) in IP layer. It can be used for service negotiation from host to network, network to host, and network to network. The automated negotiation makes service negotiation efficient in terms of time,(More)
In the vision of pervasive computing, users will exchange information and control their environments from anywhere using various wireline/wireless networks and computing devices. We believe that current protocols, such as DHCP, PPP and Mobile IP, we must be enhanced to support pervasive network access. In particular, this paper identifies three fundamental(More)
This paper describes a lightweight Intra-domain Management Protocol (IDMP) for managing mobility within a domain, commonly known as micro-mobility management, for next generation wireless networks. IDMP is modular and simple because it leverages existing protocols, such as Mobile IP or SIP (Session Initiated Protocol) as global mobility management, for(More)
This paper presents a QoS architecture framework with preliminary protocol specifications for next generation wireless IP networks. The architecture is based on differentiated services, in that traffic are aggregated and forwarded in backbone network based on per hop behaviors; however, it is also offers a dynamic per session QoS negotiation which is needed(More)
