— There are numerous research challenges that need to be addressed till a wide deployment of VANET networks becomes possible. One of the critical issues consists of the design of scalable routing algorithms that are robust to frequent path disruptions caused by vehicles' mobility. This paper argues the use of information on vehicles' movement information(More)
This article introduces the Follow-Me Cloud concept and proposes its framework. The proposed framework is aimed at smooth migration of all or only a required portion of an ongoing IP service between a data center and user equipment of a 3GPP mobile network to another optimal DC with no service disruption. The service migration and continuity is supported by(More)
—Coupling the high data rates of IEEE 802.11p-based VANETs and the wide coverage area of 3GPP networks (e.g., UMTS), this paper envisions a VANET-UMTS integrated network architecture. In this architecture, vehicles are dynamically clustered according to different related metrics. From these clusters, a minimum number of vehicles, equipped with IEEE 802.11p(More)
Internetworking over vehicle ad-hoc networks (VANETs) is getting increasing attention from all major car manufacturers. The design of effective vehicular communications poses a series of technical challenges. Guaranteeing a stable and reliable routing mechanism over VANETs is an important step towards the realization of effective vehicular communications.(More)
