Users’ demands for Internet connectivity anytime anywhere are no longer a future requirement, but a reality that operators face today. The current trend in hand-held devices, equipped with multiple access technologies, and accessing IP data services triggered the need for mobility support managed by the IP layer. However, the complexity of protocols such as Mobile IP complicated the deployment of solutions in real products. Lately, there is a new trend toward solutions that enable the mobility of IP devices with a local domain with only the support from the network. Proxy Mobile IPv6 is the solution standardized by the IETF that follows this “novel” approach.
This talk briefly summarizes what Proxy Mobile IPv6 provides, and what it does not, introducing different problems we are working on: integrating mobile networks support, enabling flow mobility and enhancing multicast support.
CARLOS J. BERNARDOS received a telecommunication engineering degree in 2003, and a Ph.D. in telematics in 2006, both from the University Carlos III of Madrid, where he worked as a research and teaching assistant from 2003 to 2008, and since then as an associate professor. His Ph.D. thesis focused on route optimization for mobile networks in IPv6 heterogeneous environments. He has published over 30 cientific papers in prestigious international journals and conferences, and also contributes to the IETF. He served as TPC chair of WEEDEV 2009 and as guest editor of IEEE Network.
The conference will be conducted in English
