Software Defined Network (SDN) is widely deployed by using OpenFlow protocol for the implementation of flexible networking. A lot of researches are progressing to adapt OpenFlow to existing network architectures. PMIPv6 is proposed to handle the network-based local mobility using IP tunneling. However, it has some weak points such as IP tunneling overhead(More)
A Dual Connectivity architecture has been proposed by 3GPP for enhancement of small cells in long term evolution heterogeneous networks. A Master eNodeB (MeNB) handles handovers on behalf of the Mobility Management Entity (MME) and the Serving Gateway (SGW) for secondary eNodeBs (SeNB) located within the coverage of MeNB. Workloads of the MME and the SGW(More)
Heterogeneous network, which consists of macro-cells and small cells, is actively researched in Long Term Evolution (LTE) area. The present handover procedure is not considered for the heterogeneous network environment. As the coverage of a small cell is limited, more frequent handovers occur. Therefore, workloads of a Mobility Management Entity (MME) and a(More)
An IP address is used as a host identifier and a locator to bind hosts and applications to their location in existing Internet. Several protocols are proposed to eliminate this binding. Most of these protocols use IPv6-based host identifiers to maintain compatibility with existing Internet, but these identifiers cannot be handled by standard IPv6 routers(More)
Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) is a network-based mobility management protocol. Mobile node (MN) does not participate in mobility-related signaling in PMIPv6. PMIPv6 can support multi-homing hosts with the help of virtual interface to perform inter-technology handover or to support flow mobility. However, a single virtual interface has the problem of swapping(More)
