16 2. Mobile Communication

17 Principles

18 Mobile Communication Tied to electro-magnetic radio transmission
terrestrial orbital (satellite) broadcast radio beam radio equatorial orbit non-equatorial orbit cellular non-cellular Principles: Propagation and reception of electro-magnetic waves Modulation methods and their properties Multiplex methods Satellite orbits/Sight- and overlap areas

19 Cellular Networks: Principles
Interference Zone R Channels Channels 1-800 5R 1 5 6 3 7 4 2 R 7-Cell-Cluster (repeat sample of the same radio-channels) Supply- (radius R) and interference areas (5 R)

20 Cellular Networks: Principles
Cell structure: Example Reference cell Cell in the interference area of the reference cell Further cells, whose channel distribution should be known to the reference cell

21 Kinds of antennas: directional & sectored
Energy is radiated in definite directions, for instance x-Direction So called main propagation directions, for instance Satellite Antennas Often also used in Mobile Radio Systems, such as GSM, for creation of sectored cells Seamless radio supply via partial/overlay of sectors x z y x Directional Antenna Sectored Antenna

22 Media Access Methods

23 Principles Multiplex Media Access Methods
Multiple-shift usage of the medium without interference 4 multiplex methods: Space Time Frequency Code Media Access Methods controls user access to medium

24 SDMA (Space Division Multiple Access)
based on SDM (Space Division Multiplexing, Space Multiplex) communication channel obtains definite Space for definite Time on the definite Frequency with definite Code Space Multiplex for instance in the Analog Phone Systems (for each participant one line) and for Broadcasting Stations Problem: secure distance (interferences) between transmitting stations is required (using one frequency) and by pure Space Multiplex each communication channel would require an own transmitting station Space Multiplex is only reasonable in combination with other multiplex methods SDMA for instance by base station dedication to an end-device via Media Access Methods or respectively by segmentation of a Mobile Radio Network to several areas

25 SDMA: Example k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 s f1 SDMA finds selection
s – secure distance

26 FDMA (Frequency Division Multiple Access)
Based on FDM (Frequency Division Multiplexing, Frequency Multiplex) i.e. to transmission channels several frequencies are permanently assigned, for instance radio transmitting stations k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 t f k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 f1 f4 FDMA finds selection f2 f5 s f3 f6 s – secure distance

27 TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access)
Based on TDM (Time Division Multiplexing, Time Multiplex) i.e. to transmission channels is the transmission medium is slot assigned for certain time, is often used in LANs Synchronization (timing, static or dynamic) between transmitting and receiving stations is required k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 TDMA finds selection t f k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 f1

28 Combination: FDMA and TDMA, for instance GSM
GSM uses combination of FDMA and TDMA for better use of narrow resources the used band width for each carrier is 200 kHz f in MHz 960 TS0 TS1 TS2 TS3 TS4 TS5 TS6 TS7 downlink 25 MHz 935,2 915 TS0 TS1 TS2 TS3 TS4 TS5 TS6 TS7 200 kHz 45 MHz uplink 25 MHz 890,2 t

29 CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access)
based on CDM (Code Division Multiplexing, Code multiplex) i.e. to transmission channels the definite Code is assigned, this can be on the same Frequency for the same Time transmitted derivates from military area via development of cost-efficient VLSI components via spread spectrum techniques a good communication security and tiny fault sensitivity but: exact synchronization is required, code of transmitting station must be known to receiving station, complex receivers for signal separation are required Noise should not be very high

30 CDMA k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 f1 CDMA decoded

31 CDMA illustrated by example
The Principle of CDMA can be good illustrated by the example of some party: communication partners stand closely to each other, each transmission station (Sender) is only so loud, that it does not interfere to neighbored groups transmission stations (Senders) use certain Codes (for instance, just other languages), they can be just separately received by other transmission stations receiving station (Listener) attunes to this language (Code), all other Senders are realizing this only as background noise if receiving station (Listener) cannot understand this language (Code), then it can just receive the data, but it cannot do anything with them if two communication partners would like to have some secure communication line, then they should simply use a secret language (Code) Potential Problems: security distance is too tiny: interferences (i.e. Polish und Czech)

32 CDMA-Example in the theory
Sender A Sends Ad =1, Key Ak = (set: „0“= -1, „1“= +1) Transmit signal As =Ad *Ak = (-1, +1, -1, -1, +1, +1) Sender B sends Bd =0, Key Bk = (set: „0“= -1, „1“= +1) Transmit signal Bs =Bd *Bk = (-1, -1, +1, -1, +1, -1) Both signals superpose additively in air Faults are ignored here (noises etc.) C = As+ Bs =(-2,0,0,-2,+2,0) Receiver will listen to Sender A uses Key Ak bitwise (internal product) Ae = C * Ak = = 6 Result is greater than 0, so sent bit was „1“ analog B Be = C * Bk = = -6, also „0“

33 Spread Spectrum Techniques
Signal is spread by the Sender before the transmission (overblown) dP/df value corresponds with so called Power Density, Energy is constant (in the Figure: the filled areas) Objective: Increase of robustness against small band-width faults listening security: power density of spread-spectrum signals can be lower than that of background noise

34 Spread Spectrum Techniques
small band-width faults are spread by de-spreading in receiving station band-pass deletes redundant frequency parts

40 Broadcast/multicast networks
several carrier frequencies but participant obtains carrier for short time only often in use by taxi- und logistics enterprises etc., each own separated frequency reaches can use the same frequency packs with FDM- and TDM- techniques, i.e. more efficient handling with narrow resource frequency spectrum improves transition to fixed network, speech- and data services not for public access very reliable, cost-efficient

41 TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio)
former name: Trans-European Trunked Radio frequencies: , MHz Uplink; , MHz Downlink bandwidth of each channel: 25 kHz 1991 started by ETSI replace of national networks like MODACOM, MOBITEX or COGNITO Services: Voice + Data (V+D)- Service: Speech and Data, channel-oriented, uni-, multi- and broadcast possible Packet Data Optimized (PDO)- Service: packet-oriented, improves connection-oriented or connectionless service, as well as point-to-point and point-to-multipoint communication carrier services with data rate up to 28,8 kbit/s unprotected; 9,6 kbit/s - protected

42 TETRA, advantages compared with GSM, UMTS
confirmed and/or non-confirmed Group Call (however it’s already possible with GSM today: up to 16 participants) Group call listening is possible (so called “open-channel mode”) very reliable fast dialing: approx. 300 ms (so called “push to talk”), GSM: several seconds certain independence of infrastructure (so called “direct mode” between end-devices) cost-efficient, especially for limited user quantity, because of the „large“ cells x • 10 km also especially suitable for emergency teams (fire department, ambulance etc.)

43 Cordless Telephony - DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications)
frequency reach: MHz other than GSM limited to short reaches (1km) in buildings particularly under 50m is not designed for use at high rates mobile phones with GSM and DECT are available in the market 120 full duplex channels TDD (Time Division Duplex) for directional separation with 10ms frame length frequency reach is divided into 10 carrier frequencies using FDMA each station 10mW averaged, max. 250mW of transmitting power, GSM – radio phones transmit at 1 to 2W, fixed car phones up to 8W

70 GSM-Security: assessment
cryptographic methods secret, so they are not „well examined“ symmetric procedure consequence: storage of user special secret keys with net operators required low key length Ki with max. 128 Bit (could be hacked by using Brute Force Attack in 8-12 hours) no mutual authentication intended consequence: Attacker can pretend a GSM-Net no end-to-end encryption no end-to-end authentication Key generation and -administration not controlled by the participants


72 HSCSD: High Speed Circuit Switched Data

78 Assessment of HSCSD existing net structure and accounting model maintained in comparison to GPRS only around1/5 of investment necessary HSCSD is still circuit switched has defined QoS- settings (data rate, delay) one logical channel will be switched on all interfaces for the time of the connection Non-efficient for burst-like traffic (Internet) or Flat Rate billing (Logistics) no international acceptance (Roaming!) uses also more resources on the radio interface problems with handover into a new cell

79 GPRS: General Packet Radio Service

80 Properties Packet switching service (end- to- end)
Data rates up to 171,2 kbit/s (theoretical) Effective and flexible administration of the radio interface adaptive channel encoding Internetworking with IP- and X.25 nets standardized dynamic sharing of resources with „classical“ GSM speech services Advantage: Billing and Accounting according to data volume Disadvantage: cost intensive additional net hardware necessary

86 Tasks of the GGSN mediator between GPRS backbone and external data networks (Internet, X-25 etc.) converts GPRS packets, data Protocol (PDP) into the corresponding structure also converts PDP addresses of incoming packets into GSM address of the receiver saves current data for the SGSN address of the participant as well as their profile and data for authentication and invoice

87 GPRS: air interface Radio Link Control (RLC)
Segmentation of the LLC-Frames in RLC blocks Block size dependent on short-term channel conditions Backward error correction and data flow control by Automatic Repeat Request (ARQ) protocol repeating not repairable RLC blocks selectively Medium Access Control ( MAC) Channel reservation contains: - one/several time slots (Packet Data Channels PDCH) of one frequency one uplink status flag (USF) per Packet Data Channel (PDCH), channel partition of up to 8 ms

88 GPRS: air interface Reservation in the uplink (MS to BSS):
Medium Access Control ( MAC) Reservation in the uplink (MS to BSS): MS sends reservation request on a Random Access Channel (Slotted ALOHA) BTS allocates a (split) channel and sends packet assignment MS sends data depending on the current priority (USF flag) Reservation in the Downlink (BSS to MS): BTS displays transmitting request and informs about the reserved channel MS supervises the reserved channel and receives

89 GPRS: air interface Physical Link Control
adaptive forward error correction (FEC) dependent on short-term channel conditions temporal scrambling (Interleaving) of the bursts and Mapping on reserved PDCH (Packet Data Channel) procedure to recognize overbooking situations on the physical channel GPRS Channel Encoding

90 Quality of Service QoS profile agrees service parameters inside the whole network Agreed for the duration of one PDP (Packet Data Protocol) context (session, end terminal is obtainable for the duration of the context, e.g. obtainable over Internet ) : temporary address (IP) for mobile station tunneling information, among others GGSN, which is used for access to corresponding packet arranged network type of the connection QoS profile QoS profile commits: precedence class, priority against other services (high, normal, low) packet delay class, times are valid for traffic inside the GPRS- network reliability class peak throughput class mean throughput class

91 Quality of Service Packet delay classes Security classes

92 Quality of Service GPRS- using data rates
CS 3 and CS 4 are only reasonable in the second phase of GPRS introduction They will be used adaptively at corresponding good quality of radio connection CS 4 does not comprise error correction, code rate = 1!

93 Assessment of GPRS An up to 4 times higher data rate in comparison to ordinary GSM- data services better resource management through packet arranged service „always on” data service ( , etc.) GPRS is a more suitable carrier for services like WAP - IP-derivate, no true guaranties (QoS) - development of the network infrastructure is relatively expensive, particularly regarding introduction to UMTS (return of investment) - GPRS doesn’t give such data rates like advertising has sometimes promised

175 Wireless ATM: review WATM still is standardization endeavors, no definite standards approved the WATM forum has tried to standardize as much as possible, the WATM standard is relatively complex WATM supports relatively many configurations: wireless Ad-hoc networks wireless mobile end-devices: access to the network via radio subsystem, similar to access-points mobile end-devices: seamless handover between connected terminals mobile ATM-Switches (for planes, ships, trains etc.) fixed ATM-terminals: conventional ATM fixed terminals with radio access: comparable with line-of-sight radio links It is not arranged completely for which configuration also products will exist

178 Basics (1) satellites describe elliptical or circular orbit around the earth distance to the earth remains constant: (1) - Appeal of the Earth - Centrifugal force - Mass of the satellite - Earth radius, 6.370km - Distance of the satellite to the Earth’s center - Grounding acceleration, g = 9,81 m/s2 - Angular frequency: - Cycle frequency of the satellite

179 Basics (2) Formulae transformation: F = m . a (by Newton)
Fgrav = k . M . m / r2 (Gravitation between 2 point masses) mg = k . M . m / R2 (Appeal on the Earth surface = Gravitation) k . M = gR2 FG = gR2 m/r2 = gm(R/r)2 (transformed) δt = 2 . (r-R) / c Signal propagation delay Satellite Downlink r-R Uplink

180 Basics (3) (2) (1) resolved to r gives:
that means, the distance of a satellite to the earth's surface depends only on its cycle duration (special case T = 24h - > synchronous distance r= km) (2) Cycle duration [h] 10 20 30 40 x 106 m 4 12 velocity [x1000km/h] Synchronous distance km

181 Satellite system classes
GEO (Geostationary Earth Orbit) ca km MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) ca km Van-Allen-belts km km (no satellite use possible) LEO (Low Earth Orbit) ca km HEO (Highly Elliptical Orbit)

182 Geostationary Satellite systems
Principle: Satellit Base for Inmarsat Uplink Downlink Constant position to the Earth, 3 satellites cover complete earth (with the exception of the polar caps), satellites move synchronously to the Earth Simple solution, however large distance (36000 km), therefore high signal propagation delay, long life time of the satellites: ~ 15 years low data rates, large transmission power required problems: on the other side of the 60th degree of latitude reception problems (elevation) because of a high transmission power unfavorable for mobile telephones signal propagation delay too high (0.25 s)

183 LEO- Systems non-stationary satellites (LEO - Low Earth Orbit)
distance to the earth ~ km shorter signal runtimes (5-10 ms), lower transmission power of the mobile stations sufficing however more satellites necessary, frequent handover between satellites, approximately all 10 min. examples: Teledesic, Globalstar only low transmission power necessary, suitable for mobile phone networks Disadvantages: large number is necessary ( , or more) fast handovers within satellites are necessary short life time of the satellites because of atmospheric friction (5-8 years)

184 MEO- Systems ~ 10000km, lower number of satellites necessary : ~12
slow movement: handover between satellites is hardly necessary cycle duration: 6h high elevation enables coverage large, highly-populated areas Problems: signal propagation delay: 70 to 80 ms higher transmission power is necessary special antennas for small cells are necessary

188 Global Positioning System, GPS

189 Overview 24 satellites on the 6 orbits (20200 km, time of circulation = 12h) 5 earth stations (Hawaii, Ascension Island, Diego Garcia, Kwajalein, Colorado Springs) Accuracy: so called P-Code for military applications: on ~6m accurately, partially 2,8m so called Selective Availability Mode, SAM (artificial degradation) for civil applications: < 100m ( disestablished) Functionality principle: Triangulation GPS-receiver calculates distance to the satellite on the base of Time of Arrival of the received signals distances to at least three satellites enables the calculation of position, a fourth satellite can be used for determination of elevation over zero official initiation 1995, testing since 1978

190 Principle: TOA (Time of Arrival) / TDOA (Time Difference of Arrival)
Distance d, Signal Delay T Mobile Object synchronized clocks measurement of signal delay by speed of light between satellite and receiver, for instance T = 100 ms hence calculation of distance: d = T • c = 1 • 10-1s • 3 • 108 m/s = 3 • 107 m = km calculation of spheres around each satellite the position is on the intersection point of three spheres

191 Principles satellites send a signal composed of three components 50 times per second: identification component: PRC (Pseudo Random Code), provides satellite recognition and status information position component: exact position of satellite time component: time point, when signal is transmitted the time offset measured by the receiver is corresponding to the Time of Arrival, from TOA the distance is calculated for measurement of TOA of signals very accurate clocks are required the exact position of the satellites must be known

192 Sources of errors Clocks highly accurate atom clocks in the satellites
simple clocks in the receivers are calibrated via measurement of a fourth satellite Satellite position satellite orbits are relatively stable and forecastable deviations are measured by US DoD deviations are transmitted as correction factor to the satellites using the PRC Miscellaneous error sources atmospheric faults multi-path propagation

193 Differential GPS, DGPS use of a stationary receiver as reference
position of this receiver is exactly known the stationary receiver carries out position determination and calculates correction factor from the actually obtained position on the base of deviations correction factor is delivered to the mobile receiver

194 DGPS accuracy grades Accuracy under 10cm: Accuracy under 1m:
professional applications, for instance is interesting in meterology and respectively for user of well-engineered software decisions (machine control systems etc.) Accuracy under 1m: events mapping, control of machines, traffic control systems, agriculture Guaranteed accuracy under 10m: agriculture/ forestry, railway (wagon search service), car navigation (private/commercial)

198 Broadcast Systems, Distribution Networks

199 Overview special variants of asymmetric communication systems
HSCSD supports for instance asymmetric connections regarding to data rate, also ADSL WWW is the biggest representative of asymmetric communication: data volume of uplink (URLs) is much lower than downlink (complete HTML-pages) Problem of distribution systems: Sender can be optimized for a large quantity of receivers only, for instance videostreaming Examples: DVB, Digital Video Broadcast DAB, Digital Audio Broadcast

200 Principle of Distribution Systems
A C B B C Time information sequence is optimized for expected access behavior of all consumers A B t Individual access sample of diverse consumers can more or less deviate from expected access behavior

201 Digital Audio Broadcast, DAB
Audio-transmission in CD-Quality Non-sensible towards interferences of multi-path-propagation Use of SFN (Single Frequency Network) – i.e. all senders of some broadcast-program are working on the same frequency as a rule Frequencies: UHF,VHF, for instance: MHz, MHz Modulation methods: DQPSK (Differential Quadrature Phase Shift Keying) Optionally COFDM (Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) is used with several carrier frequencies inside some DAB-channel (its quantity is between 192 and 1536), 1,5MHz bandwidth for each channel FEC (Forward Error Correction)-mechanism for fault correction Up to 6 stereo-programs by 192 kbit/s in the same frequency band are transmittable alternatively data can be transmitted with up to 1,5 Mbit/s (responding to the used code rate etc.)

202 Digital Audio Broadcast, DAB
2 Transport Mechanisms Main Service Channel (MSC): Data, Audio, Multimedia 2 Transport Modes: Stream Mode, Packet Mode Fast Information Channel (FIC): Transport of Fast Information Blocks (FIB, 32 Byte) – control data for interpretation of Data in the MSC, can be also used for services such as Traffic Dispatches, Paging etc. Audio-converting: PCM 48 kHz & MPEG2-Audiocompression High transmission rates by high velocities, up to 250 km/h, responding to distance from sender and error security class, use for instance in high-speed train MOT (Multimedia Object Transfer) protocol for data transmission Cyclic repeat and caching of data blocks

204 DVB - Digital Video Broadcasting
1991 ELR (European Launching Group) founded Goal: joint digital Television System for Europe Specifications: DVB-S, DVB-T, DVB-C Frequency reaches: 200, 550, 700 MHz Cell size: up to 60 km Used data rate: ~38,5 Mbit/s Velocity of mobile stations: up to 200 km/h Central Unit: combined DVB-Receiver-Decoder (set-top-box) can receive DVB-Data via satellites, B-ISDN, ADSL… some transmission systems offer a feedback channel for Video on Demand etc.

205 DVB - Digital Video Broadcasting
Different Quality Levels defined: SDTV (Standard Definition TV) EDTV (Enhanced DTV) HDTV (High DTV) Data transport: User Data: MPEG2-Container (Data Transfer Unit) like DAB, Container doesn’t define the type of data Service Information about MPEG2-Container-content: NIT (Network Information Table): Information from a provider about offered services and optional data for the receiver SDT (Service Description Table): Description and parameters for each service in the MPEG2-stream EIT (Event Information Table): Data about actual transmission status TDT (Time and Date Table): e.g. updating of DVB-receiver

209 3. Mobile Computing

210 Layer 3 Mobile IP v4 & v6 DHCP

211 Mobile IP (Internet Protocol)

212 Problem situation computer mobility in heterogenic networks
relocation between different IP-subnets Goal: transparent migration and localization, compatibility to IP, no changes of existing routers Idea: introduction of temporary/ actual IP-addresses (also “care-of-address”, COA); mapping of permanent to temporary IP-addresses using localization technique

213 Requirements to MobileIP according to IETF
Transparency: mobile computer is permanently reachable via its previous “home-address” can change its network access point freely can also communicate after coupling/uncoupling Compatibility: supports each layer below IP (also 1 & 2) mobile computer can also communicate with each “non-mobileIP”-computer no changes to existing computer/routers Security: all registering messages must be authenticated

214 IETF Mobile IP Goals/Restrictions
Minimization of overheads: mobile connections are possibly wireless and have limited band width mobile connections have possibly higher error rate Efficiency and scalability: support of a large quantities of mobile computers support of a theoretically Internet-wide mobility

215 Correspondent Node (CN)
Architecture model Foreign Agent (FA) Foreign Subnet Global Internet Mobile Node Anywhere Home Subnet Home Agent (HA) Router Correspondent Node (CN)

216 Terms Mobile Node (MN) with permanent IP-address from Home Subnet
Home Address permanent address of a mobile computer Home Agent (HA) with knowledge of actual residence of all MNs from so called Home Subnet, like GSM-HLR Care of Address temporary address of a mobile computer from Foreign Subnet Foreign Agent (FA) for assignment of temporary IP-addresses (care of address) and packet forwarding to MNs currently residing in its subnet

217 Log on via Foreign Agent
Home Subnet Foreign Subnet 2.) relaying request HA FA MN 1.) Registration.request 3.) relaying.reply {grant, deny} 4.) Registration reply Log on with a FA - Care-of Address (address of FA, is just an intermediate target for all MN- related packets, tunnel-end) or Application of a co-located Care-of Address (address from Foreign-Subnet, MN is tunnel-end itself), but reception of an Agent Advertisement Message with a set “R”-bit, i.e. the MN is forced to log on with FA itself, although it can operate autonomously

218 Log on by Home Agent directly
MN uses co-located Care-of Address MN is returned to Home Network and would like to log on/off itself with the HA Authentication: each mobile entity (MN, HA, FA) must be able to support a “mobility security association”, which is indicated via IP-address and SPI (Security Parameter Index). Mobile IP provides three different Authentication Extensions: Mobile - Home Authentication Ext. Mobile - Foreign Authentication Ext. Foreign - Home Authentication Ext. Home Subnet MN 1.) Registration.request HA 2.) Registration.reply {grant, deny}

219 Addressing Problem: For the receivers 2 addresses are necessary (permanent and temporary IP-address respectively home address and COA) Methods of resolution: Encapsulation IP in IP, standard method in MobileIPv4 minimal Encapsulation IP-Option (not supported by all implementations)

220 IP in IP Encapsulation OUTER IP HEADER IP HEADER IP HEADER IP PAYLOAD IP PAYLOAD IP-source/target address of external/outer IP-Header defines the “end- points” of the tunnel IP-source/target address of internal IP-Header represents the actual packet sender respectively receiver Internal IP-Header isn't changed using “Encapsulator” (exception: TTL)

221 Routing (unicast) Mobile Node: Foreign Agent:
in Home Network it operates like each other Node in Foreign Network it must search a Default Router using the following rules: FA COA: ICMP Router Advertisement-Part; IP-source address of Agent Advertisements (lower Prior.) co-located COA: ICMP Router Advertisement for this address Foreign Agent: FA must check by reception of tunneled packets whether internal target address corresponds with one of the IP-addresses of Visitor List FA must route the received packets of registered MN’s!

222 Routing (unicast) II Home Agent:
HA must intercept each packet for absent MN in addition IP-target address of each incoming packets is verified if MN has no mobile coupling presently, the packets sent to it must not be intercepted, MN is situated in Home Subnet and accepts packets itself or is off-line

223 Routing (necessities)
ARP (Address Resolution Protocol): oriented to resolution of IP-addresses in physical (Hardware, Link Layer) addresses (Ethernet: MAC-addresses of controllers) Proxy ARP: Proxy ARP-reply is an ARP-reply, which can be sent instead of a host A by other host B (with its hardware address) Hosts, receiving this reply, associate the hardware-address of node B with the IP-address of node A and send future packets for A to B Gratuitous ARP: is an ARP-reply, which is sent from a host, to force other hosts to update the records in their ARP-Caches this ARP-reply contains the IP-address, which should be changed in the ARP- Caches, as well as the hardware address which should be updated

224 Routing - Scenario MN leaves Home Network
MN decides to register FA Care-of Address Before Registration Request: MN re-sets a reaction on future ARP-requests Registration Request contains and accepts HA Request, implements Gratuitous ARP (IP-address MN ===> own hardware-address) and uses Proxy ARP to respond to ARP-requests corresponding to MN hardware address

225 Special case: Routing (MN & CN are in the same Subnet)
Triangle Routing CN FA CN ===> MN: Foreign Network MN although CN is in the same Subnet like MN, packets are routed respectively tunneled via FA and primarily HA (possibly over half of terrestrial globe)!!! Home Network MN ===> CN: HA Be routed conventionally via Default Router Special case: Routing (MN & CN are in the same Subnet) Relief (IPv4): Route Optimization

226 Optimizations: Routing
Terms: Binding Cache: table with Mobility Bindings of MNs (on CN, can tunnel itself now) Binding Update: message, contains up-to-date Mobility Binding of a MN, particularly the Care-of Address Procedure: Update of Binding Caches Control seamless Handoffs between FA‘s

227 Updating of Binding Caches
Binding Cache of a CN: Care-of Address of one/several MN‘s, with respective Lifetime No Entry: non-optimal Routing, BUT: HA doesn’t only tunnel a datagram from CN, but also sends a Binding Update to it CN should generate/change Binding Cache-Entry only then, when trusted Mobility Binding received (Bind. Upd.) for corresponding MN (ergo: Secure CN <===> HA) If FA receives tunneled Packet for a MN that is no longer in Visitor List, then it must care that corresponding CN receives a Binding Update (Binding Warning to HA)

228 Smooth Handoff between FAs
Problem of Basis-MobileIP: MN is with a new FA, but the packets tunneled to old FA will be lost FA Smooth Handoff: MNs are informed via new FA (packet can be forwarded) also Packets of hosts with non-up-to-date entries in Binding Cache can be forwarded now from old FA to the new FAs Previous Foreign Agent Notification Extension enables to prompt the new FA to inform the old FA (Binding Update Message)

229 MobileIP v4 & v6 in comparison
Routing Optimal Routing, only if MN in the Home Network. (Otherwise non-efficient „Triangle“-Routing) Optimal Routing is generally possible, if CN knows the Care-of Address Bottle neck HA is a possible bottleneck, because all traffic to the MN is processed over it HA is load essentially reduced, because CN‘s can just directly communicate with mit MN‘s Security Authentication is prescribed only by Registration and then also between HA and MN only Authentication and encryption are possible anywhere, because they are supported from IPv6 Robustness Used FA‘s / HA‘s must not be off-line Short-time failure/re-configuration of HA is mastered thanks to Automatic Home Agent Discovery. IPv6 is essentially simpler to upgrade, therewith also Mobile IPv6 Performance No good performance due to IPv4-requirements and non-optimal Routing Essentially better due to requirements from IPv6 (uniform Headers, less Over- heads) and optimal Routing

230 Assessment Mobile IP enables the unlimited accessibility/roaming of mobile computers using perpetuation of their addresses and step-less transfer between subnets Particularly necessary for applications without “pull”-semantics (for instance, distributed applications with mobile users, videoconferences, VoIP) Keeping of permanent addresses are also important corresponding to Firewalls etc. in the case of call semantics Successive availability in the form of products

231 Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
Server A Server B Client DHCPDISCOVER Determination of configuration DHCPOFFER Selection of a configuration DHCPREQUEST (reject) (options) Confirmation DHCPACK Properties: permits automatic configuration (IP-address, subnet-mask, router, DNS-Server, ...) and therewith integration of (mobile) computers Client/Server-Model Lease Concept Relevant for management of Care-of-Addresses

232 DHCP Assessment no secure mechanisms standardized
no standardized communication (signalization, for instance information exchange about managed address areas) between DHCP-servers good base for allocation of co-located COAs in MobileIP

233 IPsec: Network security

234 IPsec: Security on the network layer (1)
IPsec - IP Security Protocol – new developed protocol from TCP/IP-Stack, related to the IPng - Group IPsec uses: encryption services -> DES, TripleDES and 40-bit-DES between hosts at a VPN (virtual private network) specification for Internet Key Management Protocol (IKMP), based on ISAKMP/Oakley (1998, Internet Security Association and Key Management Protocol - ISAKMP) IPSec-tunnels – encapsulation of TCP/IP-data via the ESP/AH- headers: Developed by S.Kent, R. Atkinson „IP Encapsulating Security Payload" (RFC 2406, 1998) and "IP Authentication Header" (RFC 2402, 1998) relevant for key assignment to IP-subnets

235 IPsec: Security on the network layer (2)
Secrecy on the network layer: a sending host encrypts/authenticates data encapsulated in the IP-datagrams TCP/UDP-segments ICMP/SNMP-messages Authentication on the network layer: target host can authenticate source IP-addresses Basic protocols: Authentication Header (AH) Protocol Encapsulation Security Payload (ESP) Protocol AH and ESP both requires target and source Handshake-Routine: establishment of a logical channel via network layer, called Service Agreement (SA) each SA is unidirectional Distinctly determined via: security protocol (AH / ESP) source IP-address Con-ID of 32 Bit

236 Encapsulation Security Payload (ESP) Protocol
offers secrecy, host authentication and data integrity data, ESP trailers encrypted next header field is a trailer in the ESP ESP- authentication field is similar to AH- authentication field; protocol field = 50 ESP-Auth Protocol = 50 ESP-Trailer TCP-/UDP-Segment authenticated encrypted ESP-Header IP-Header

237 Authentication Header (AH) Protocol
offers host authentication and data integrity, but no secrecy AH headers inserted between IP-Header and IP-data field; protocol field = 51 participated routers process datagrams as usually AH-Header consists of: Con-ID authentication data: signed message digest calculated via original IP-Datagram, offers authentication of source hosts and data integrity next header field is specific data type (TCP, UDP, ICMP etc.) TCP-/UDP-Segment AH-Header IP-Header Protocol = 51

238 Layer 4

239 Problems of conventional protocols
Loss of packets on the radio channels with higher bit-error rate (BER) results in frequent retransmissions of packets and therewith in further efficiency loss TCP-Protocol uses so called “Slow-Start”-mechanisms: window size is reduced by significant packet losses; this is reasonable for fixed networks, to react on overload, but not for packet losses due to higher BER limited suitability of conventional transport protocols for mobile communication!

240 Conventional protocols
Congestion Control: packet loss as a rule, in fixed networks occurs only by overload of several components reducing of transmission rate Slow Start: sender calculates a traffic window size start with window size 1 exponential growth till to Congestion Threshold then linear growth Fast Retransmit / Fast Recovery: If ≥ 3 DUPACK (duplicate ACK) are received -> sender informs about packet losses and repeats missing packets

241 Resulting problems in mobile environment
packet losses due to transmission errors are wrongly interpreted as traffic jam (Congestion)! > Slow Start is also wrong > Ideally the packets lost due to transmission errors are simply repeated (no effects on Congestion Control) great variances of Round-Trip-Time

242 Scenario Fixed Host Access Point 1 Mobile Host Access Point 2

243 Solutions Sender- transparent:
to hide the packet losses transparent to the sender transmission repeat via Access Point on layer 2 on TCP-layer Wireless-aware sender: sender understands the reason of packet loss explicit notification of senders sender tries to determine the reason of loss Where will be the modifications carried out?: only by the sender only by the receiver only on the transient node (Access Point) combinations

244 Solution “Split Connection“
Separation between transport functionality in the fixed network respectively in the mobile network: Work- station TCP MSR Mobile TCP Mobile node Fixed network Mobile network Mobile Support Router TCP-Handover by relocation of mobile node MSR MobileTCP is specially optimized (up to 100% of efficiency improvement possible) system-internal TCP-Handovers are necessary, however transparent for fixed computer (Workstation)

245 Example of I-TCP (indirect TCP)
separation of TCP-connection at the Access Point optimized TCP over the wireless Link (not absolutely necessary) no changes of TCP for the fixed network transparent for Fixed Host loss of End-to-End-semantics Fixed Host Access Point 1 Mobile Host „wireless TCP“ „standard TCP“

246 Example of I-TCP Mobility: status and buffer transfer Fixed Host
Access Point 1 Mobile Host Access Point 2

247 I-TCP Assessment no changes in the fixed network
the errors in the wireless part aren’t propagated to the fixed network both parts can be optimized independently relatively simple: „wireless TCP“ concerns one Hop only the properties of wireless networks (bit-error rate, delay time) are known, therefore fast retransmissions are possible loss of End-to-End-semantics additional costs (computation time, storage place) concerning the Access Point high delay times with handover caused by buffering of data by Access Point IT-security mechanisms must be adapted

248 Example of Snoop transparent extension of Access Point from sender’s viewpoint Access Point listens to the traffic (snoops) and filters the ACKs buffering of data, are sent to the mobile computer after losses of packets in the wireless network a direct retransmission takes place between Access Point and Mobile Host Access Points send NACK after packet losses of MH Fixed Host Access Point 1 Mobile Host „local retransmission” Buffer TCP

249 Snoop Assessment maintenance of End-to-End-semantics
modifications only at the TCP-Stack of Access Points errors in the wireless part can be corrected locally Soft State no status transfer at new Access Point is necessary change is possible, also if the new Access Point possesses no Snoop no complete transparency of wireless connection handling of NACK requires the modifications of MH IT-security: encryption can prevent an access to TCP-Header (most of the up-to-date approaches use End-to-End-encryption!)

276 WAP layer architecture
Wireless Session Protocol (WSP) Wireless Transaction Protocol (WTP) Wireless Transport Layer Security (WTLS) Wireless Datagram Protocol (WDP) Carrier A Adaptation Carrier B Adaptation Carrier C Adaptation Carrier D Service D Carrier Service C Carrier Service B Carrier Service A Physical Layer Air Link Technology

277 Wireless Session Protocol
supports Client/Server context (shared state), optimization of content transmission offers semantics and mechanisms, which are based on HTTP and improvements for use in mobile radio networks with low-performance end-devices

278 WSP overview (1) HTTP elements: Improvements:
extensible request/reply methods extensible request/reply headers uniform contents composed objects asynchronous requests Improvements: binary encoding of headers session headers (Client & Server) confirmed and unconfirmed network-initiated delivery (Push)

279 WSP overview (2) Improvements corresponding to HTTP:
negotiations of supported characteristics session suspend/resume multiple complete asynchronous transactions connectionless service Why doesn’t HTTP suffice? no compact encoding insufficient negotiations Push doesn't exist

280 Characteristics message size protocol options
Confirmed Push Facility/ Push Facility (unconfirmed) Session Resume … maximum outstanding (unanswered) requests Header Code Pages (known field names in the protocol headers are separated into pages) ...

281 Suspend/Resume Server knows, when a Client accepts data (Push)
multi-carrier devices dynamical addressing enables release of carrier resources

282 Wireless Transaction Protocol (WTP)
Goal: efficient request/reply-based transport mechanism for mobile radio networks and low-performance end-devices Properties: robust data transmission no explicit connection set up and connection release data are transmitted already with the first packet packet oriented abortion-function for outstanding (unanswered) requests

283 Wireless Transaction Protocol (WTP)
Properties: supports concatenation of messages further WTP features: repeated transmission due to packet loss (selective) fragmentation port numbers (UDP) flow control Transaction = Interaction between Initiator and Responder

284 WTP – transaction classes (1)
non-robust datagram-service for instance for Push during a session shouldn’t substitute WDP the transactions are closed after transmission of Invoke Class 1: robust datagram-service

285 WTP – transaction classes (2)
robust datagram-service with robust Invoke- and robust Result-messages the transactions are closed via the Initiator after answer confirmation of the Responder

286 Wireless Datagram Protocol (WDP)
provides connectionless, non-robust datagram-service is substituted by UDP, if IP the a carrier re-adaptation to the carrier takes place in the Adaptation Layer supports port numbers

287 Wireless Transport Layer Security (WTLS)
enables secure connections, uses protocol elements of known, secure Internet-protocols (TLS) provides mechanisms for encryption, strong authentication, integrity and key management corresponds to guidelines of national authorities offers end-to-end security

288 WAP & Security WTLS (Wireless Transport Layer Security) offers only security via encryption of transmitted data (Grade #1) presently, similar to TLS, only communication trustiness is protected Grade #2 supports Server- and Client-certificates, for instance via additional chip-cards in mobile phones, so called WIM - Wireless Identification Module

289 WAP & Security UBS (Switzerland)

306 WAP-result WML doesn’t bring whole Internet’s diversity to a mobile phone there are no satisfactory rate models at the moment; the data-rates are too low even with GPRS limited input and selection possibilities require a reconsidering of interaction semantics, WAP isn’t oriented for many applications, for instance catalogs with a large selection -> PDAs, appliances, voice input and -recognition with introduction of data services with higher data-rates WAP could lose its relevance possibly -> XHTML however WAP means a first step towards independence from PC by access to Internet contents -> multi-dimensional distribution channels for information WAP means the start for creation of a formidable user population (potentially all mobile radio participants)!

307 WAP-Improvements: WAP2.0 (1)
New version Internet-based data services on mobile phones approved by WAP Forum mid-2001 oriented to GPRS and 3G cellular/UMTS Useful services at WAP2.0 devices color graphics and Pictograms location-specific content, navigational functions and user-friendly menus animation representations and streaming media Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) large-file downloading (music) synchronization of user information with personal information manager software on a desktop PC in a remote location Source:

308 WAP-Improvements: WAP2.0 (2)
WAP 2.0 builds upon the latest Internet standards: XHTML, TCP/IP, HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP/1.1) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) uses mostly TCP as transport optimized for small low-performance end-devices WAP 2.0 supports additionally: Wireless Telephony Application (WTA), Push, and User Agent Profile (UAPROF) utilize more advanced features in WAP 2.0 than in WAP1.x

309 WAP-Improvements: WAP2.0 (3)
Application development easier development of WAP applications More comfortable user environment Migration aspects WAP2.0 offers a migration to XHTML (Extensible Hypertext Markup Language) and TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) Supporting XHTML, WAP 2.0 reduces development costs, allowing developers to write applications for both PC and WAP Security offers more secure due to “end-to-end encryption” (from the mobile device to the server)

310 WAP2.0 and i-mode Competition & Fusion
NTT DoCoMo's I-Mode is a serious competitor of WAP2.0 NTT DoCoMo's I-Mode moves in the direction of support of XHTML and TCP, too I-mode and WAP2.0 will probably converge

311 i-Mode An overview Based partially on the materials of NTT-DoCoMo

312 Structure

313 Overview i-Mode is a product and a trademark of NTT-DoCoMo
The enterprise NTT-DoCoMo started in February 1999 with a proprietary development: i-Mode, although NTT-DoCoMo is the member of WAP-Forum itself Meantime i-Mode has got a large number of registered users : over 33 millions Source:

314 Properties i-Mode is packet oriented
always online, no time delays to dial-up billing regarding data volumes and not regarding to time simple page markup language – compact HTML (cHTML) End of 2002: change into XHTML (WAP 2.0) a great success in Japan, because private computers and private Internet access over fixed networks are infrequent In Germany E-plus has started i-Mode on 16th march 2002

315 compact HTML cHTML or compact HTML is a language subset of HTML
very simplified HTML Lists, Forms, Selections, Input fields are possible no Frames, no Tables, no CSS 166 additional pictograms, for instance Fine Heartbreak Motor sports WC

316 compact HTML (2) Access key-Attribute for direct link activation respectively for direct selection of input fields pictures can be displayed only in GIF-format, max. 5 KB per page. GIF-pictures mustn’t larger than 120*128 dots (little display) also animated GIFs 256 colours (capable of Display) Compact HTML Sites look like “normal” HTML, so also “normal” Browsers like Netscape can work with them i-Mode – on a mobile phone an i-Mode screenshot

319 i-Mode network architecture (2)
i-Mode Server: - consists of multiple server systems (B-,C-,M-Max ..), each server system is responsible for special tasks - represents the contents of „Information Providers“, operates Internet-Mail and i-Mod , enables the connection to Internet M-PGW (Mobile Message-Packet Gateway Module): transforms the protocols: TCP with i-Mode-Server and TLP (Transport Layer Protocol) with PPM PPM (Packet Processing Module): executes the packet connection with the mobile end-devices/peripherals

320 i-Mode network architecture (3)
M-SCP (Mobile-Service Control Point): authentication of user data (similar to voice communication) PGW (Packet Gateway Module): transition to other networks, for instance to offer the enterprises a Virtual Private Network (VPN)

332 XML- document „bibliography“
reference to Style Sheet File special tags

333 Valid and well-formed documents
XML-Documents can have a DTD (Document Type Definition). The DTD can be contained in the document or can be referenced by a link. A DTD specifies, which tags are permitted and how these can be combined. It has a special meaning for the processing of documents. The processing programs can check XML- documents for structural errors with the help of DTD. If there is no error then a document is valid! Well-formed documents contain no DTD- reference, but fulfill the XML-syntax-rules.

345 Contents customization with XML / XSLT
Separation of content and presentation content client- independent in XML XSLT: XSL transformations: a XML- data format is changed into a new data format (not necessarily XML), this new data format can include platform dependent information about the presentation of data besides the main information presentation client- dependent in some XSLTs XML-Support in many data bases the server itself needs additional logic

346 Contents customization with XML / XSLT
server-sided requests: reconnaissance and classification of the client choice of the suitable style sheets parameter handover to XSLT Processing of other documents (e.g. bitmaps)

347 Example application: Pizza ordering service
content and logic in same XML-document no presentation-semantic in XML, so all client- abilities can be used in XSLT but stylesheets are not reusable

353 XHTML XHTML™ 1.0 is Extensible HyperText Markup Language (Second Edition) reformulation of HTML 4 in XML 1.0 use instead of WML2.0 correspondently cHTML (i-Mode) basis for integration between WAP2.0 and i-Mode WWW:

354 XHTML supporting via as well as WAP-Browsers also Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer constituents: DTD (Document Definition) XSL (Extensible Stylesheet Language) large quantity of supported tags in comparison with WML2.0 and cHTML CSS frames tables forms/input fields applet calls

355 XHTML vs HTML XHTML describes data <-> HTML displays data!
XHTML – combining HTML and XML, and their strengths XHTML is oriented to internet/PC and mobile internet/ mobile phones and hand helds XHTML - compatibility everything has to be marked up correctly -> "well-formed" documents pages can be read by all XML enabled devices upgrading of XML supported browsers compatibility to all browsers backward browser compatible

356 Mobile agents

357 The agent- model an agent-system consists of the agents themselves and an execution engine for working with agents. The execution engine offers basic services to the agents Agent is an independent program generally, it consists of data, code and execution state, it works in interest and order of a third party (e.g. user, application).

358 Agent system OS Network place 5 place 4 Place 1 Place 3 Hardware
Operating System Operating system Hardware Hardware

359 Agent model migration: transfer of code, data, state
Client create Agent code, data, state simple Server- interface result migration: transfer of code, data, state local interactions with server transfer of the result

360 Properties of mobile agents
Advantages: reduction of network load autonomy and asynchronity dynamic adapting in environment heterogeneity robustness and error tolerance scalability personalization and individualization dynamic code-installation encapsulation of protocols Disadvantages: need of special execution engine (Middleware) high security requirements transfer of code, data, state Decision: migration vs. remote communication

361 Applications E-commerce database requests intelligent e-mails

392 Mobile File Manager: example CODA
distributed file system, which offers the unbreakable access to data also in the case of server shut-down or net failure developed at the Carnegie Mellon University based on AFS (Andrew File System, distributed file system in UNIX-environment) relatively transparent to the applications

393 CODA overview based on the model of „Disconnected Operations”
client keeps Read- and Write-access on the data via inset of a local buffer (Cache) also during temporary disconnection from net with re-connection system forwards changes and recognizes potential conflicts for different operating systems available (for instance LINUX, Solaris, Windows)

394 (“Whole-File-Caching”)
CODA system model Replicated Server: High availability Net communication at file open and close Disconnected Client: local data access on Cache Client (“Whole-File-Caching”)

395 properties of consistence (Coda)
Callback logic reference from server to the active client, used for immediate information about file changes via other client after connection failures the file in client cache remains valid till to timeout termination (as a rule several minutes) thereby reduced consistency conflict processing explicitly in interactive form, however low conflict probability

396 Conflict processing (CODA)
extensive automation as objective purpose, however isn’t possibly for: Update/Update-conflict: independent double update of the same file Delete/Update-conflict: independent erasure respectively update of the same file Name/Name-conflict: generating of two files with the same name Manual access after user notification

397 Cache management (Coda)
“Cache-Misses”: searched file isn’t in the Client-Cache processing failure in the disconnected status priority list of important files per user the highest priority is always kept in the cache (for instance by system programs, user profiles, address files etc.) other priorities: exchange strategies correspondent to importance dynamic generated files via list of essential operations referenced (for instance actual test protocol etc.)

398 File synchronization under Windows
Windows: over System Control -> Management -> Services so called „file replication (server)“ for synchronization of data between different servers under Explorer -> Extras -> Synchronization: Synchronization of own Homepage with PC Synchronization of Sites in WWW

399 E-Hand connects existing Enterprise Systems with mobile end-devices
platform independent - very simple synchronization and data transfer - supports XML, ODBC and SyncML Advantages: - contains Web-similar user interface for application installation and for mobile participants

401 Mobile databases support
Motivation: SFA-Sales-force-automation: -> actual information about clients, competitors and market trends to the field (outside-) workers emergent business transactions on the site -> efficiency increasing Example: Pharmaceutical Industry visit of 6 up to 8 distribution medics per day to bring dialogue to the point more quickly previous information about the medic (contacts, receipt prescription habits) are recallable from the firm-net presently still manually due to dialogue recording and product documentation in the future via mobile databases permanently faster access to data without inconvenient storage, connection establishment etc.

402 Mobile databases support
mobile databases offer principally data synchronization and replication of enterprise servers and for mobile end-devices like PALM etc. due to increasingly mobile business processes there is a necessity of databases, which must perform these functionalities among other things: quickly compatible to as many as possible mobile systems 2 mobile database types: “asynchronous synchronization”: for instance SQL Remote of Sybase data replication between central database and multiple remote databases also offline-working is possible due to -queuing principle (sent, if connected) “synchronous synchronization”: for instance Sybase Mobilink Synchronization Server co-operation with databases of other vendors (via Server Middleware) permanent connection necessary, for instance via GSM

403 IBM DB2 Everyplace compatible for instance to Windows CE, PalmOS, EPOC ... footprint: ~150 k (storage requirements) for data balancing DB Everyplace Sync Server is necessary synchronization with other Handhelds without PC! includes so called Mobile Devices Administration Center enables central management of all mobile end-devices of a enterprise supports integration of enterprise data from different databases and other sources (DB2 replication technology, JDBC, Adapter API for customized decisions) data are encrypted during synchronization (56 or 128 Bit) supports automatic conflict processing

405 Oracle Lite 3 constituents: Oracle Lite DBMS iConnect Web-to-go
database with low footprint (storage requirements) Java-enabled iConnect components for synchronization and creation of messaging-applications (principle of message queues) Web-to-go components supporting development, deployment and management of mobile Web-applications

406 Oracle Lite replication via Internet File-based replication

407 Sybase SQL Anywhere Studio
mini-database, can be operated on the PDAs supports PalmOS, EPOC and WindowsCE small „footprint“: ~50kByte developer can adapt the database according to the required SQL-properties, modular design principle synchronization enables data balancing with the enterprises database, all well-known database vendors are supported only the changed data are transmitted both local (for instance B. Hotsync (Palm)) and remote synchronization supported architecture similar to IBM DB2 Mobile Connect (Source:

413 Online-information services
Client Server for instance WWW low band width Client (mobile) low battery resource Client/Server-access by individual requests additionally: separate broadcast-channel from Server to the mobile Clients: transmission and caching of frequently requested information; thereby lower battery consumption (receiving less expensive as sending for the Client)

414 Optimization: basic concept
information in Publication-Group: regular Broadcast information in On-Demand-Group: Client/Server-queries exchange between both groups on the basis of: access frequency (for instance on WWW-pages) page modification frequency channel bandwidths clients storage volumes (Cache)

417 Sample: 12snap system architecture
external provider mobile radio net D2 center Offers via Cellular Broadcast Internet Automatic processing of the orders which are incoming via phone-service; also coupling of WAP and telephony Call Center Users are registered by 12snap and enable direct debit, respectively booking via the credit card; Orders are sent to a Call-Center via keyboard tone, client identification takes place via his phone number (CLIP = Calling Line Identification Presentation)

418 Sample: Client is registered in the Internet by and enables direct debit Client obtains as a result so called Paybox-PINs; using Paybox-PIN client can unblock the transactions purchase payments in the Internet are carried out as follows: Client selects „Paybox“ as a payment type Merchant sends transaction to Paybox-provider via secure data connection Provider dials up the clients via phone numbers stored in his master data then Client can unblock the transaction with his PIN Paybox transfers money via direct debit and forwards it to the Merchant
