A Mobility Management Solution for Simultaneous Mobility with mSCTP
Blekinge Institute of Technology, School of Computing2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
The paper is about mobile Stream Control Transmission Protocol (mSCTP) and the problems related to simultaneous mobility. Simultaneous mobility is when the both endpoints of a communication session are mobile and they move at about the same time. mSCTP works well in the case of non-simultaneous mobility where the SCTP association is established between a mobile endpoint and a stationary one. In the case of simultaneous mobility however, the probability of broken association may become high because both endpoints may suffer from losing address binding update. This is a consequence of the fact that the targeted addresses become unreachable. In this paper, we suggest a solution based on Host Name Address (HNA), together with pro-active Name Server, Address Handling Function (AHF) and Simultaneous Mobility Detection Function (SMDF) to eliminate this problem. Our preliminary results show that the performance of our solution is as good as for non-simultaneous mobility situation in terms of packet loss rate for low rate stream. On the other hand, the drawback is that some modifications to the current standard mSCTP are needed.
