Mobility Management for Seamless Information Flow in a Heterogeneous Networks

Adiline Macriga and Anandhakumar


Problem statement: In the heterogeneous networks, generally the entire networks operating on the Radio Frequencies under wireless mode available for communication are brought under a single head based on their common operating procedures and functions. As a common mode the basic functions of the networks are requesting, tracing, sending, acknowledging, authenticating, authorizing, receiving, updating, forwarding, controlling, registering, managing. As the radio frequency is considered the signal strength, maximum coverage, power level are taken as the major factor. Approach: Todays cellular network has a wide coverage area and also a good signal strength and as the WiMax is considered the data transmission rate and the volume of information communicated is high. As we consider the Adhoc Network the path tracing and the nearby node identification is faster and there is no need for a standard architecture. As the major of the different networks are combined with certain QoS without disturbing the existing infrastructure a fast seamless flow of voluminous information in real time application can be achieved. As the data transmission is considered the major part is affected based on the initiation & delay such as authentication delay, handover delay, session initiation, activation which is being carried out only after the control had reached the service point. Results: In the proposed study the transmission of information is purely controlled by categorizing the type of information that is being transmitted such as the information ready for transmission is online or offline. Coming to on line either voice communication, Multimedia communication or real-time information transmission. Considering the offline the information is stored file or images. Among the above one the real time video transmission is considered as the major application because delay cannot be permitted and one more thing the mobility should be managed without any break in the transmission path. The rapidly growing demand for “anywhere, anytime” high-speed access to IP-based services is becoming one of the major challenges for mobile networks. Conclusion: As the demand for mobility increases, mobile terminals need to roam freely across heterogeneous networks, posing the challenge of network integration into an All-IP ubiquitous access platform.
