An Experiment of Dependability and Performance of GSM Access to Fixed Data Network

  title={An Experiment of Dependability and Performance of GSM Access to Fixed Data Network},
  author={Heimo Laamanen},
Recent developments in mobile computing have created new possibilities for mobile offices. Int egration of wireline and wireless networking lays a new foundation for services available in traditional fixed computer networks almost everywhere. However, in tegration of a wireless wide area network (WWAN) and a fixed data network raises several technical questions including dependability and performance. An experiment was carried out at Digital Equipment Cor p ation Oy (Finland). The goals of this…

Optimizing World-Wide Web for weakly connected mobile workstations: An indirect approach
This paper designs a communication architecture that makes it possible to exploit the existing TCP/IP communication protocols but that also takes into account specific features of cellular links and demonstrates how the architecture is used to improve the performance of the WWW information browsing.

I-TCP is described, which is an indirect transport layer protocol for mobile hosts, which utilizes the resources of Mobility Support Routers (MSRs) to provide transport layer communication between mobile hosts and hosts on the fixed network.
Nonstandard for transmission of IP datagrams over serial lines: SLIP
The TCP/IP protocol family runs over a variety of network media: IEEE 802.3 (ethernet) and 802.5 (token ring) LAN's, X.25 lines, satellite links, and serial lines. There are standard encapsulations
Firewalls and internet security - repelling the wily hacker
The first edition made a number of predictions, explicitly or implicitly, about the growth of the Web and the patterns of Internet connectivity vastly increased, and warned of issues posed by home LANs, and about the problems caused by roaming laptops.
Handling mobile clients: a case for indirect interaction
There is a need to make mobility explicit at every level of the OSI model - even above the network level through user or application level - and it is proposed that the mobile host and the first hop of communication be handled differently than the rest of the network.
