Demsontrate handover solutions in GENI WiMAX

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: OFUWI: S4.e Demonstrate at least one unique University of Wisconsin contribution
Component: WIMXUWI Version: SPIRAL4
Keywords: GEC17 Cc:


Scenario: An user at home is on video Skype call over a WiFi interface. Midway through the call, the user wants to roam out of his home while continuing his Skype call. Prior to leaving his home, he initiates a connection handover from WiFi to WiMAX interface. The user then roams roams outside to region where the connection to another WiMAX basestation is stronger than the first WiMAX basestation. Therefore, the user initates handover from WiMAX basestation to the another without breaking the ongoing Skype call.

Technology demonstrated: The handover from WiFi to WiMAX interfaces on the same node relies on a OpenV switch implemented at the client. The Clemson team have implemented a client software to perform this handover using the OpenV switch. The handover between WiMAX basestations relies on mobile IP implementation. The University of Wisconsin team has the software on the infrastructure side implementing the mobile IP solution. The demonstration will show both these capabilities and the seamlesss integration between the two.

I'll need the MAC addresses of the device(s) you want to assign a static IP. The sooner the better, thanks!
