Distinguish Speaker lecture: Mobility Handover Optimization Framework and IEEE 5G Initiative


As mobile networks continue to grow and converge with the Internet, new wireless devices and their use are outnumbering the use of fixed network. Mobility management needs to meet the requirements of existing and emerging network technologies and applications. It may be supported in different layers of the network protocol stack. At the IP layer, Mobile IP, an IP-based mobility management, has the advantage of being applicable in any IP-based network, but is faced with many deployment challenges. Numerous variants of Mobile IP have been proposed to address these challenges in different network environments. Research in mobility management has become more active, especially with the mobile networks continuing to evolve from hierarchical towards more flattened network and densification of wireless networks. This talk presents the basics, recent advances, and future directions for mobility protocols at various layers (e.g., network, transport and application). This talk then provides taxonomy of existing mobility protocols, illustrates an abstract mobility model that can be used to support various handoff scenarios. Various handoff optimization methodologies will be explained supported by experimental and simulation results. This talk cites a few deployment scenarios to describe applicability of mobility protocols to various network environments. Finally, the talk goes through the best practices for mobility management and provides some research directions.

During the latter part of the talk the speaker will give an overview IEEE 5G and Beyond Initiative, various ongoing activities of several roadmap working groups and entail procedures to get involved in this initiative.
