21-06-0469-00-0000 Issue on Identifiers in 802.21 Issue 1: How a remote event/command for a particular link is mapped to the MIHF that uses the link Issue 2: How an MIHF in the network can maintain the registration status for an MIHF UE while the UE may change its transport address(es) Issue 3: How an MIHF in the network can maintain the transport address(es) of an MIHF UE when the UE has multiple interfaces Issues that are not discussed in this document: NAT traversal: This is a transport issue Proxy operation: This is a message routing issue
21-06-0469-00-0000 Issue 1: Mapping Link Indications to Higher- Layer State In section 2.9 of draft-iab-link-indications-04.txt: “ [d] Mapping of Identifiers. When link indications are transported, it is generally for the purposes of saying something about Internet, Transport or Application layer operations at a remote element. These layers use different identifiers, and so it is necessary to match the link indication with relevant higher layer state. Therefore proposals need to demonstrate how the link indication can be mapped to the right higher layer state. ”
21-06-0469-00-0000 Issue 1: Mapping Link Indications to Higher- Layer State (cont’d) Issue: A higher-layer transport uses IP address as transport address, but an IP address itself does not represent a link (while an IP address can be used for identifying an MIHF, see next slide) Approach 1: Creating a mapping between an IP address and a link-layer address during event/command registration This helps a receiver of a remote event or command to identify the link using the source IP address of the event or command This does not work when a remote event or command for a particular link of an MIHF is sent over another link of the MIHF or when the same IP address is shared among multiple interfaces Approach 2: Carrying a link identifier with a remote event or command E.g., LinkIdentifier defined in Link_Up.indication primitive can be used for this purpose
21-06-0469-00-0000 Issue 2: Maintaining Registration Issue: How an MIHF in the network can maintain the registration status for an MIHF UE while the UE may change its transport address(es) Registration ID needs to be assigned during initial registration A transport address cannot serve as a registration ID because it can change after MN ’ s movement A new identifier needs to be defined for this purpose The same ID may be used for re-registration Does a registration ID need to be carried in each MIH message?
21-06-0469-00-0000 Issue 3: Multiple Interfaces Issue: How an MIHF in the network can maintain the transport address(es) of an MIHF UE when the UE has multiple interfaces Exchanging transport addresses during registration is needed for mapping a particular registration to transport address(es) required by transport protocol When adding or deleting a transport address, re-registration would be needed
