1 MuGM IEEE MEDIA INDEPENDENT HANDOVER DCN: MuGM Title: Requirements for New MIH Applications Date Submitted: May, 15, 2012 Presented at IEEE session #50 in Atlanta Authors or Source(s): Toru Kambayashi and Yoshihiro Ohba (TOSHIBA), Stephan Chasko (Landis+Gyr) Abstract: This document describes new use cases and security- related requirements which the use cases introduce. The new use cases described here are load balancing, f/w update and failover/failback in mesh network of smart meters.

3 Glossary B/W - Backward F/W – Forward or firmware GM - Group Manager MIH - Media Independent Handover MIHF - Media Independent Handover Function MN - Mobile Node PoA - Point of Access MuGM

4 Target Use Cases Applications Handover for load balance F/W Update Handover in case of a system failure (failover/failback), etc. Mesh Network of Smart Meters Collector 1 Collector 2 Collector 3 Control Center MuGM

5 Group Manager Conditions for Group of MNs One group has one and only one group id and one: Each MN in a group has the group id for the group One MN may belong to multiple groups Only a GM can create a new group. Only a GM can break up a group When a new group is created, the GM distributes the group id to the members of the group When a group is to be broken up, the GM issues the command to the members of the group to delete the group id Only a GM has capability to separate one group into multiple groups Especially, a GM may exclude one MN out of a group The GM distributes (new) group ids Only a GM has capability to unite multiple groups into one group Especially, a GM may make one MN join a group The GM distributes a (new) group id The commands issued by a GM and the relevant events should be secured One multicast address may accommodate MNs which belong multiple groups. MNs in a group may listen to multiple multicast channels MuGM

6 Model for Load Balancing MIH MN MIH MN MIH MN MIH PoS Group Manager MIH MIH PoS Control Center Candidate PoA Serving PoA MuGM

7 Example Scenario for Load Balancing Groups: Let group G1 and group G1’ be groups the member MNs of which currently communicate the Serving PoA The union of G1 and G1’ is the set of all the MNs which currently communicate the Serving PoA The intersection of G1 and G1’ is empty G1’ is the group to handover Let group G2 be the set of all the MNs which currently communicate the Candidate PoA Actions: 1.The Control Center makes the GM pass the group id of G1’ to the Candidate PoA 2.The Control Center obtains the group id of G1’ from the GM 3.The Control Center issues (via multicast channels through the Serving PoA) to the member MNs of G1’, i.e. designating them by the group id, a command for handover to the Candidate PoA 4.The handover is completed 5.The Control Center may make the GM unite G1’ and G MuGM

8 Example Scenario for Load Balancing * The Control Center issues the commands to the MIHFs so that it controls the sequence * Authentication between an MN in G1’ and the Candidate PoA will be performed later if necessary MuGM

9 Model for F/W, configuration update MIH MN MIH MN MIH MN MIH PoS Group Manager MIH PoS Update Srv MIH PoS Control Center MuGM

10 Example Scenario for F/W Update Groups: Let group G1 be the set of all the MNs which are the targets of the f/w update Actions: The Control Center makes the GM pass the group id of G1 to the Update Server The Update Server issues a command for f/w update and distributes (via all the available multicast channels) the command with the new f/w to the members of G1 The f/w update is completed The Control Center may make the GM unite G1 with a group of MNs that have the updated version of f/w MuGM

11 Model for Failover MIH MN MIH MN MIH MN MIH PoS Group Manager MIHs MIH PoS Control Center Candidate PoAs MIH Serving PoA MIH MN MuGM

12 Example Scenario for Failover Groups: Let groups G1, G2, …, Gn be groups the member MNs of which currently communicate the Serving PoA The union of G1, G2, …, Gn is the set of all the MNs which currently communicate the Serving PoA The intersection of any two groups is empty Actions: 1.The Serving PoA drops, and the Control Center detects the Serving PoA being dead 2.The Control Center chooses Candidate PoAs: A1, A2, …, An 3.The Control Center makes the GM pass the group ids of G1, G2, …, Gn to A1, A2, …, An respectively 4.The Control Center obtains from the GM the group ids of G1, G2, …, Gn 5.The Control Center issues (via all the available multicast channels) to the member MNs of G1, G2, …, Gn commands for handover to A1, A2, …, An respectively 6.The failover is completed 7.The Control Center may make the GM unite the groups which communicate A1, A2, …, An MuGM

13 Model for Failback MIH MN MIH MN MIH MN MIH PoS Group Manager MIHs MIH PoS Control Center Serving PoAs MIH Candidate PoA MIH MN MuGM

14 Example Scenario for Failback Groups: Let groups G1, G2, …, Gn be groups of MNs which currently communicate PoAs: A1, A2, …, An G1, G2, …, Gn are the groups to failback Actions: 1.The Control Center chooses a Candidate PoA 2.The Control Center makes the GM pass the group ids of G1, G2, …, Gn to the Candidate PoA 3.The Control Center obtains from the GM the group ids of G1, G2, …, Gn 4.The Control Center distributes (via multicast channels through the Candidate PoA) to the member MNs of G1, G2, …, Gn commands for handover to the Candidate PoA 5.The failback is completed MuGM

15 Some Further Considerations What is the authority to issue commands to a GM? How should we define it? For generation, break-up, unification or separation of groups What should be contents of attributes/IEs? To whom should the information be provided? What should be secured? May an MN outside of a group know who is the members of a group? May an MN in a group know who is the members of a group? May an MN outside of a group know that a group-related command targeted the group is issued? etc MuGM
