3 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off Media Independent Hand-off (MIH)

4 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off4 Motivation for Wireless Hand-Off Multiple Wireless Technologies Co-exist –WiMAX (802.16e)/WiBro –WLAN (802.11a,b,g) –Cellular (GPRS,CDMA-2000,3GPP) –Bluetooth Current technologies are limited to a specific range –WAN/MAN –LAN –PAN Users desire seamless wireless connectivity

5 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off5 Types of Hand-off Hard Hand-off –Link is broken before new one is formed Soft Hand-off –Link is established before old one is terminated. Seamless Hand-off –Soft hand-off in which there is no loss of information Homogeneous (Horizontal) Hand-off –Within Single Network (Localized Mobility) b to g One network access point to another in the same network. –Limited opportunities (reliant on a single network) Heterogeneous (Vertical) Hand-off –Across Different Networks (Global Mobility) Cellular to WIMAX to g – defines a framework for vertical handovers between heterogeneous networks. –Optimal Network Selection

6 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off Overview Emerging IEEE Standard for Media Independent Hand-off (MIH) First draft standard May ‘05/Current draft standard March ‘06 Includes protocol specifications for: –Cellular (GSM/GPRS) –WiFi (802.11a,b,g) –WiMAX (802.16e) –Bluetooth ( ) Protocol benefits –Seamless (low latency), vertical hand-off –Automatic detection and selection of network access points –Hand-off triggers that allow smooth, low loss network transitions –Automatic, intelligence selection of the optimal network based on the user’s bandwidth and throughput requirements –Supports both point-to-multipoint (user to access point) and peer- to-peer (adhoc) connectivity –Open source, compatible with other 802 standards –Compatible with standard security algorithms

7 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off7 Optimal Network Selection specifies triggers that are used by the mobile device to determine the optimal network when more than 1 is present (network overlays) –signal quality –synchronization time differences –transmission error rates –available bandwidth –quality of service (QoS) Metrics are tracked in the mobile device, which makes the determination to transfer to another access point. The access point does not make the decision to initiate hand-off (in the case of vertical hand-offs)

8 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off Protocol Responsibility Hand-off Initiation Hand-off Preparation Hand-off Execution Search New Link Network Discovery Network Selection Hand-off Negotiation Setup New Link Link Layer Connectivity IP Layer Connectivity Transfer Connection Handover Signaling Context Transfer Packet Reception SpecificationOther 802 Standards

9 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off9 MIH Function MIH Function is the set of hand- off enabling functions in the protocol stack (hand-off intelligence). Primarily link layer protocols Event Service - info flows up (detection) Command Service – info flows down (control) Information Service – info flows both ways (query/response) Mobility Management Protocol Stack (Heterogeneous Hand-off)

10 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off10 MIH Services Media Independent Event Services (MIES) –Triggered events corresponding to dynamic changes in the link characteristics or status Media Independent Command Services (MICS) –Used to manage and control link behavior relevant to hand- offs and mobility –Uses event service information as part of the subscription and notification process Media Independent Information Services (MIIS) –Provides an information model that passes on awareness regarding the neighboring networks and their capabilities.

11 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off11 MIES (Event Services) Reports local and remote events to higher layers. –Local Events: take place at mobile node. –Remote Events: take place in other network elements (i.e. link A going down at time t) Subscription/Notification Procedure –MIES registers with MAC layer, and is notified if a subscription event occurs. –Trigger examples Link up/down Link parameters change Link hand-off imminent Link Characteristics Link Status Link Quality Link State Changes Event Classification Event Filtering Event Reporting Event Services

12 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off12 MICS (Command Services) Controls MIH functions, and layer 2 services Executes IP mobility and connectivity decisions Both local and remote commands are possible Includes link discovery and link configuration Example commands: –MIH Poll –MIH Scan –MIH Configure –MIH Switch

13 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off13 MIIS (Information Services) Link-Layer convergence zone for multiple heterogeneous access technologies Unified presentation to upper layers of the mobility- management protocol stack Awareness of neighboring networks and available resources Facilitates effective network access Facilitates hand-off decisions Information discovery only/Does not make hand-off decisions

22 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off22 Handoff Parameter Consideration How to determine the ”best” network when making a vertical handoff decision? –Signal-to-interference ratio (or SNR or SSI) –Link/route cost (network policies) –Overall network performance (or capacity) –Power consumption/cost –Mobile host speed (small or large coverage foot print) –Traffic demand/speed-of-service (acceptable latency) –Quality of Service Algorithm should take all these parameters into consideration

23 November 17, 2006Wireless Network Independent Hand-Off QoS Features Differentiated levels of QoS. Demand Assigned Multiple Access (DAMA) allocates time slots (bandwidth resources) based on demand and QoS requirements. QoS is set at the time that the connection is established, and cannot be adjusted.
