Handling Mobile Clients: A Case for Indirect Interaction


Networking protocols are being modi ed to handle mobility of hosts. This paper argues that 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. Further, it is proposed that the mobile host and the rst hop (wireless link) of communication be handled di erently than the rest of the network. Hence, in networks with mobile hosts, we propose a radical approach of indirect interaction between clients and servers.
