—Mobile IP is a simple and scalable global mobility solution. However, it may cause excessive signaling traffic and long signaling delay. Mobile IP regional registration is proposed to reduce the number of location updates to the home network and to reduce the signaling delay. This paper introduces a novel distributed and dynamic regional location(More)
—Cognitive radio (CR) technology is regarded as a promising solution to the spectrum scarcity problem. Due to the spectrum varying nature of CR networks, unlicensed users are required to perform spectrum handoffs when licensed users reuse the spectrum. In this paper, we study the performance of the spectrum handoff process in a CR ad hoc network under(More)

—Cellular networks have been hierarchical so that mobility management have primarily been deployed in a centralized architecture. More flattened network architecture for the mobile Internet is anticipated to meet the needs of rapidly increasing traffic from the mobile users and to reduce cost in the core network. Distributing the mobility management(More)
—Mobile IP is a solution for mobility on the global In-ternet. However, it does not extend well to highly mobile users. Mobile IP regional registration is proposed to reduce the number of location updates to the home network, and reduce the signaling delay. This paper introduces an optimal regional location management mechanism for Mobile IP that results in(More)
