1 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide Handoff Presentation to WNG David Johnston

2 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide 2 First Session of 802 Handoff ECSG Launched, May 2003 Attendance –Monday – 30 –Tuesday – 19 –Thursday – 22 Total Attendance – Separate organizations represented

3 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide 3 Officers Chair –David Johnston, Intel Reluctant Recording Secretary –Michael G Williams, Nokia Vice Chair –Ajay Rajkumar, Lucent

4 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide 4 Charter Consider the possibility of specifying a common handoff framework application to 802 standards, wired and wireless Consider placement of work (In a new working group or 802.1) Authorized to draft a PAR

5 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide 5 Objectives Define scope and requirements –May work with all MACs and PHYs Without unnecessary overhead 802.x  802.y (where x could equal y) 802.x  non 802 –Consider how to address Authentication and Security Within the PAR? Coordinated with Link Security group Specify a framework that 802 MACs can adopt –MAC SAP Messages –MIB Entries –Other?

6 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide 6 What it is not It is not proposed to implement a protocol for handoff –We are at the link layer. What are we handing off? –Entire problem cannot be solved at layer 2 So this is not a handoff standard! Assumption that upper layer ‘thing’ can handoff (mobileIP, voice bearer etc) Addresses L2-L3 coupling of handoff process

7 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide 7 Example Scenario Multi interfaced device –Docked Laptop with 802.3, and e –Mobile IP session being used for VoIP and web traffic Laptop undocks –Needs to make a timely decision to switch to and attach to a suitable AP. –Existing traffic should suffer minimum interruption Laptop moves out of building –Needs to make a timely decision to switch to e and choice a suitable BS –Existing traffic should suffer minimum interruption

8 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide 8 What it is Focus is on –Enabling good handoff decisions Handoff decision data with interface Useful beacons/SSIDs/etc. Unambiguous DNA hints –Signaling appropriately to L3 handoff capable entities L2 triggers Wired and Wireless –802.[11/15/16] to 802.[11/15/16] are important cases –802.3 to 802.[11/15/16] are important cases –802.x to cellular is an interesting scope problem

9 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide 9 Handoff Mechanics & Domains Within a network type and administrative domain –The network standard owns handoff ESS handoff, e handoff TGi ‘fast roaming’ Handoff-Req Handoff-Resp, Context blob motion, IAPP etc etc

10 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide 10 Handoff Mechanics & Domains Between administrative domains and between heterogeneous network types –No handoff mechanism is defined or is definable in the general case What is being handed off? An association does not map onto an registration But it can be done at a higher layer –E.G. Mobile IP 802 Level provisions are needed to optimized this case –This is where 802 handoff fits in

11 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide 11 Triggers Bad name –Don’t always lead to an action Hints is a better term preferred by smarter people than me Link up is badly defined –Different between , i, f –Before/after association or authentication? –We can define trigger independent of media When can the upper layer data flow unimpeded

12 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide 12 Handoff Decisions On what do you base a handoff decision outside of a managed network/ESS domain/interface boundary? Some common information would be nice and a common way of getting at it Lots of good decisions to make –Can I authenticate here? –Is this in a subnet I have a DHCP lease in? –Is there IP above the LLC? –How much will this cost me? –Can I expect my upper layer thing to hand off here? –What APs are nearby, what channel are they on?

13 doc.: Handoff_WNG_Presentation r3 Submission July David Johnston, IntelSlide 13 Handoff Decision Data There is a need for and information base containing this data It needs to be interfaced to –Encapsulation for transport ASN.1/DER, XML, Canonical S expressions –A path from mobile to fixed part Uncontrolled port access? –An interface/API –Motion of data between neighbors
