The Ultra Flat Architecture is a new concept of fixed mobile convergent networks that aims to scale well with the mobile internet traffic explosion prognosticated for the next 5–10 years. This paper investigates the adequacy of three different signaling protocol alternatives for the Ultra Flat Architecture based on operator requirements. The applied(More)

—SCTP faces three performance problems in hard handover scenarios: high network handover delay, high transport handover delay and throughput under-utilization. Existing solutions assume the mobile extension of SCTP (m-SCTP) as a unique way to handle handovers and rely on terminal mechanisms. Nevertheless, they are not efficient as they lack the necessary(More)
