— With the increasing number of wireless devices, the importance of mobility management in future mobile networks is growing. Traditional mobility management approaches are based on client/server paradigms, and suffer from their well-known shortcomings (single point of failure, congestion, bottlenecks). With the success of P2P for file sharing applications,(More)
This paper discusses and compares different approaches to handle mobility in all-IP networks, at both the application and network layers. First, three key parameters of mobility schemes are quantified: handoff delay, registration/binding cost, and packet delivery cost. Next, these schemes are compared based on criteria such as the need for encapsulation,(More)
— As the Internet evolves into an all-IP communication infrastructure, a key issue to consider is that of creating and managing IP-based services with efficient resource utilization in a scalable, flexible, and automatic way. In this paper, we present the Autonomic Service Architecture (ASA), a uniform framework for automated management of both Internet(More)
As the Internet is evolving into a global all-service communication infrastructure, a key consideration is providing quality of service guarantees over IP with efficient resource utilization in a scalable, flexible, and automatic way. In this article, we present a virtual network (VN) based architecture for scalable IP service deployment and efficient(More)
