Sensor networks become more and more important in various application areas and several application scenarios require connectivity between sensor network and the Internet. Especially scenarios of disaster management would benefit from IP-enabled sensor networks, providing a seamless integration in WAN infrastructures without a requirement for deploying(More)
Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) is a protocol standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in order to provide mobility support for roaming host systems. A key component within the MIPv6 functionality is the Home Agent (HA), a system at which roaming Mobile Nodes (MNs) register their current point of attachment to the Internet. In order to provide this(More)
This paper describes the practical implementation of a federated health record server based on a generic and comprehensive architecture, deployed in a live clinical setting and accessed from wireless and IPv6 network test-beds. The authors, working at the Centre for Health Informatics and Multiprofessional Education (University College London), have built(More)

Active networks are networks that can be reprogrammed by injecting customized programs into some of the nodes of the network, which change the computation that is performed on packets flowing through them. Active networks have been successfully used to offer adaptable routing mechanisms in disaster scenarios, to dynamically compress data before(More)
This paper has considers the issues which arise when considering the role of programmable and active networking in the context of satellite based telecommunications. The work presented here was initiated and funded by the ESTEC, ARTES 1 program. The brief was to undertake a " study addressing the use of Active and Programmable Networking in Space and Ground(More)
Programmable Active Networking is one approach to providing open service engineering for telecommunications and networked services. The overall objective is to provide a platform which may be tailored to provide all the functionality required for many applications. Through the years a number of approaches have been developed, some of which have found(More)
