Virtual Access Points for Transparent Mobility in Wireless LANs

  title={Virtual Access Points for Transparent Mobility in Wireless LANs},
  author={Yan Grunenberger and Franck Rousseau},
  journal={2010 IEEE Wireless Communication and Networking Conference},
Mobility management in WiFi networks is still an open issue today: there is no standard method defined, and client station mobility is handled either via proprietary protocols, or simply by re- association. However, managing mobility in an infrastructure network is utterly important for several reasons: controlling delay and jitter in communications, managing clients from the network, optimizing performance. We propose the concept of virtual access points to manage mobile station in… CONTINUE READING
