IEEE MEDIA INDEPENDENT HANDOVER DCN: Title: Report on Potential Link Sync Events for IEEE r Date Submitted: Jan xx, 2006 Presented at IEEE session #12, Big Island, Hawaii Sources : Ajoy Singh, Qiaobing Xie, Yogesh Bhatt Abstract: This is our report on an action item taken from the last session with the aim to investigating and identifying any r link events that can potential be considered as new link sync events.

Background An action item was given at the last session to investigate whether there are any existing r native link events that are potentially of value to the upper layer MM decision making if passed as additional MIH link sync events. This is our report on our preliminary findings.
IEEE Mobility Scenarios No-transition: Station either has no motion or stays in the same BSS. BSS-transition: Station moves from one BSS in one ESS to another BSS within the same ESS. This is the focus of 11r. ESS-transition: Station moves from one ESS to another. Not covered by.11r spec, but a potential area of.11 improvement.
IEEE r Mobility Enhancement Overview Five steps of BSS – BSS transition: –Scanning – active or passive for other APs in the area –Authentication with a (one or more) target TAP –Re-association to establish connection at target TAP Have a connection, but still can't *DO* anything… –PTK derivation – 4-way handshake of session keys –QoS admission control to re-establish QoS streams r Fast BSS transition reduces five steps to 3 steps by eliminating last two stages (PTK derivation and QoS and admission control). –Functionality provided by PTK derivation and QoS admission control is merged along with earlier steps.
IEEE r Mobility Enhancement Overview –cont r describes following two types of inter-BSS transition. –Base Mechanism: Enables mobile (TSTA) to make a transition to a target TAP in the event that it wants to make a transition under following conditions: Without invoking a reservation Or when deployment policy enforces base mechanism –Pre-reservation mechanism: Mobile uses this mechanism when it needs assurance from that required security and QoS resources be available prior to a transition. –Pre-reservation decouples the allocation of the security and QoS resources from the mobiles critical path, e.g., (re)association. –Provides better assurance of meeting transition time required by applications.
IEEE Mobility Management Overview–cont Base and Pre-reservation mechanisms can be further classified into following two categories: –Using over-the-Air Message: TSTA communicates directly with the target TAP using Authentication frames with the Authentication Algorithm set to Fast BSS Transition. –Using over-the-DS Message : TSTA communicates with the target TAP via the current TAP. »Fast BSS Transition Action Frame is used to communicate between TSTA and current TAP »An encapsulation mechanism is used to communicate between current TAP and new TAP
Potential MIH link synchronous events for.11r Fast BSS Transition: MIH Link synchronous events could be defined and used for upper layer smoothing (e.g., enabling and disabling transport layer congestion control). Fast ESS Transition: Not supported by.11r spec. –First inter-ESS mobility mechanism will be required to enable fast-ESS transition –Subsequently link layer events can be defined to perform make-before- break L3 handoff.
