21-07-xxxx-00-00001 IEEE 802.21 MEDIA INDEPENDENT HANDOVER DCN: 21-07-xxxx-00-0000 Title: Issues with Splitting HO Commands Date Submitted: January 11, 2007 Presented at IEEE 802.21 session in London, UK Authors or Source(s): Qiaobing Xie Abstract: This contribution discusses the issues associated with the previous decision of splitting MIH HO commands based on how they are sent.

21-07-xxxx-00-00003 Splitting HO messages introduce massive changes to the draft spec Wide-spread, touching sections 6, 7, 8, and Annexes A lot of new text (new sections, new entries to tables), not a good thing at this stage of specification - we are aiming at SB in 03/2007 and our LB approval rating is still very low.
21-07-xxxx-00-00004 “3GPP/2 name their messages differently when they are sent in different directions” is not a good justification because 3GPP/2 defines its own architecture while we don’t Imposing architecture-assuming names to MIP messages (Net, MN, N2N) is a departure from our intention of making MIP protocol symmetric and architecture-agnostic. Splitting MIH HO messages implies some architecture limitations to 802.21, which may not be what we wanted, e.g., what if in a few years we want to extend 802.21 to support mesh network model?
21-07-xxxx-00-00005 Splitting HO messages creates inconsistency in our spec There are other MIH messages (see Table 3/4) that can also be sent from Client->Net, Net->Client, or Net->Net, why they are not split?
21-07-xxxx-00-00006 “Some parameters are only relevant/available when the message is sent from a certain place” is not a good justification The parameter can be simply specified as an optional TLV and only included in the message when it is relevant and available.
21-07-xxxx-00-00007 Proposal: Reverse the group decision on splitting MIH HO messages
