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)
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 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)
Providing users of multi-interface devices the ability to roam between different access networks is becoming a key requirement for service providers. The availability of multiple mobile broadband access technologies together with increasing use of real time multimedia applications is creating strong demand for handover solutions that can seamlessly and(More)
Localized mobility protocols are designed to address many of the drawbacks such as additional signaling and over-the-air tunnel overhead associated with global mobility protocols like Mobile IPv4 and Mobile IPv6. Proxy Mobile IPv6 is one such network controlled localized protocol defined in the IETF Although Proxy Mobile IPv6 can resolve longer binding(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)
MarconiNet is an architecture for IP-based radio and TV networks, built on standard Internet protocols including RTP, RTSP, SAP, and SDP. It allows to build virtual radio networks, similar to traditional AM/FM radio and TV networks. It addresses some of the practical problems of building Internet radio networks, including the insertion of local content and(More)
