We describe the protocols implemented in the Ricochet MCDN system to provide continuous connectivity to mobile users traveling up to 70 mph. These protocols are general in nature for any frequency-hopping microcell-based system, particularly those that follow the FCC part 15.247 rules [9] and operate in unlicensed spectrum. We also present throughput measurements as a function of velocity and describe a model to predict those numbers based upon the protocols implemented. The MCDN system is a… CONTINUE READING
