In this work, we measure Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) voice performance and capacity. While most WLAN applications today are data centric, the growing popularity of Voice over IP (VoIP) applications and the trend towards convergence with cellular networks will catalyze increased voice traffic. Since voice applications compete not only with each other,(More)
— This paper describes the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) based mobility in IPv6 and its performance in our laboratory testbed. For real-time mobile multimedia communication, we use SIP for signaling protocol as well as for supporting terminal mobility. While performance study for real-time mobile communication refers to several factors and their(More)
Dual-mode handsets and multimode terminals are generating demand for solutions that enable convergence and seamless handover across heterogeneous access networks. The IEEE 802.21 working group is creating a framework that defines a Media Independent Handover Function (MIHF), facilitates handover across heterogeneous access networks and helps mobile users(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 discusses an application layer framework that uses a set of standard IETF protocols for supporting real-time and non-real-time multimedia applications on mobile terminals of next generation wireless [3G/4G] networks. It describes a 3G-IP architecture and brings out the requirements and issues which are essential for supporting roaming users in(More)
— In order to ensure proper quality of service for real-time communication in a mobile wireless Internet environment it is essential to minimize the transient packet loss when the mobile is moving between different cells (subnets) within a domain. Network layer mobility management schemes have been proposed to provide optimized fast-handoff for multimedia(More)
Traditionally, signal-to-noise ratio of a mobile determines the handoff dynamics of the mobile. But in certain cases, precise location of the mobile augmented by information services, such as IEEE 802.21 MIS, can expedite the handoff with similar performance results. We illustrate an experimental system that takes advantage of the mobile's relative location(More)

Abstract The convergence of wireless and Internet Protocol (IP) has led to the need for IP to handle mobility. The Mobile IP protocol was developed to facilitate IP mobility.(More)
— In an effort to realize wireless Internet telephony and multimedia streaming in a highly mobile environment a testbed emulating a wireless Internet has been built. This would allow setting up multi-media calls between IP mobiles and integration between IP and PSTN end-points in a wireless environment. Different functionalities and components involved with(More)
