We introduce an efficient protocol for end-to-end handoff management in heterogeneous wireless IP-based networks. The protocol is based on the stream control transmission protocol (SCTP), and employs a soft-handoff mechanism that uses end-to-end semantics for signaling handoffs and for transmitting control messages. The design goal of this protocol is twofold — first, to reduce the home registration delay, and second, to eliminate the tunneling cost that exists in current proposals, such as… CONTINUE READING
