Chapter 12Conclusions

In this chapter, we discuss some of the general principles of mobility optimization, summary of contributions, and possible future work in the area of handoff optimization.

12.1 General Principles of Mobility Optimization

Currently, there are many mobility protocols available, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Each of these mobility protocols has, historically, evolved its own optimization techniques without regard for any generic framework. Thus, it is desirable to have a set of guidelines for protocol developers, mobile-network designers, and architects who plan to use these mobility protocols and associated optimization techniques based on their usage requirements and applicability. In this chapter, we summarize the fundamental components and factors that drive this systems optimization and describe the fundamental principles of systems optimization for mobility management. Some of these are protocol design methodologies, and some are guidelines for any service provider or enterprise that might wish to deploy these mobility protocols and relevant optimization techniques.

  • Since the current mobility protocols and associated optimization techniques are ad hoc in nature, it is useful to have a systematic analysis of the mobility event when designing appropriate optimization techniques.
  • Since mobility involves various layers of the protocol stack, it is important to discover the type of mobility that a mobile will be subject to, such as layer ...
