Graceful Degradation of Transport Layer in Mobile Internet

  author={Yosuke Matsushita and Takahiro Matsuda and Miki Yamamoto},
In mobile Internet, a handover may result in significant degradation of transmission performance. Especially in a shared medium wireless network, handover traffic which moves into a new wireless access network competes with existing traffic for available bandwidth of shared medium wireless channel. This interaction between handover traffic and existing traffic causes significant performance degradation of both of traffic. In this paper, we propose a new concept of Transport Layer Graceful… 


M-TCP: TCP for mobile cellular networks
It is shown that M-TCP has two significant advantages over other solutions: (1) it maintains end-to-end TCP semantics and, (2) it delivers excellent performance for environments where the mobile encounters periods of disconnection.
Fast Handovers for Mobile IPv6
This document specifies a protocol to improve handover latency due to Mobile IPv6 procedures, which is often unacceptable to real-time traffic such as Voice over IP.
Cellular IP: a new approach to Internet host mobility
Cellular IP is proposed, a new lightweight and robust protocol that is optimized to support local mobility but efficiently interworks with Mobile IP to provide wide area mobility support.

This paper explores the "freeze-TCP" mechanism which is a true end-to-end scheme and does not require the involvement of any intermediaries (such as base stations) for flow control and outlines a method which integrates the best attributes of freeze- TCP and some existing solutions.
IEEE 802.11 Wireless Local Area Networks
The performance investigation reveals that an IEEE 802.11 network may be able to carry traffic with time-bounded requirements using the point coordination function, however, the findings suggest that packetized voice traffic must be handled in conjunction with an echo canceler.
Hierarchical Mobile IPv6 Mobility Management (HMIPv6)
This document introduces extensions to Mobile IPv6 and IPv6 Neighbour Discovery to allow for local mobility handling and defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.
Mobility Support in IPv6
This document specifies Mobile IPv6, a protocol which allows nodes to remain reachable while moving around in the IPv6 Internet. Each mobile node is always identified by its home address, regardless
TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1: The Protocols
TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1 is a complete and detailed guide to the entire TCP/IP protocol suite - with an important difference from other books on the subject. Rather than just describing what the

The following protocol suggested by Schnorr gives a very efficient way to convince a verifier V that there exists w such that h = gw mod p and that P knows such a w.
