Speaker: Professor Raj Jain
This is a tutorial on networking issues raised by mobility of users. For example, how does network assign addresses to mobile users? How does it keep track of their continuously chaning location? Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)'s Mobile IP group has been working on such issues. Their approach will will be explained. Another important aspect of mobile computing is coping with constantly changing connection bandwidth in a mobile environment. Often connection is lost for substantial periods. Current research on disconnected operation will be reviewed.
