Host multi-homing and mobility in the Internet have become a trend due to the widespread wireless services and broad access methods. Meanwhile, with more and more devices join in the Internet, it will be common that one user has multiple devices online. So users will also desire to be multi-homed and mobile across not only addresses but also devices. To… (More)
—In this paper, we present a new transport protocol TSMP, which seeks to support data transfer for the emerging usage paradigm of " single user, multiple devices " in a TCP compatible manner. Through its novel naming and proxy-based designs, TSMP is able to retain the current client and server protocol operations of the legacy TCP protocol and TCP-based… (More)
As it becomes a common need to support mobility in the Internet, there is a growing trend towards providing a general mobility management function in the protocol stack by resolving identifiers of mobile nodes to their locations. However, current mechanisms have drawbacks in both performance and functionality, especially when they are partially deployed. In… (More)
This document describes a new service migration protocol, which supports multimedia transfer in single-user, multiple-device scenarios. The protocol retains operations in the current client and server protocol but places new functionalities at the proxy. It also proposes novel naming and control/data plane design.
