     824
     825 * Layer 2 handoff
     826  * Minimal:  Mobile node breaks its connection with current WiMAX BS and then establishes connection with the new WiMAX BS  [[BR]]
     827  * Better:  Mobile node needs two interfaces, in the simplest form, one interface always connects to BS1 while the other connects to BS2  [[BR]]
     828  * Need: suggested configurations, estimates of required software and level of effort  [[BR]]
     829
     830 * Layer 3 handoff
     831  * Minimal:  Controller node re-routes through new BS after IP address re-write, BUT does not allow initiation of incoming connection
     832  [[BR]]
     833  * Better:  Use open source mobile IP s/w (Transparent Mobile IP [http://sourceforge.net/projects/tmip/ link], and OpenFlow s/w in mobile node to de-encapsulate IP packets  [[BR]]
     834  * Need: suggested configurations, estimates of required software and level of effort  [[BR]]
     835
     836 * Suggested steps:   
     837  1) Yellow mobile nodeode with two interfaces, doing handover between two BS on the same subnet
     838  2) Transparent MobileIP working to implement a baseline Layer 3 handover scheme
     839  3) Support new Layer 3 solutions like Mobility First?
     840  4) Demonstrate heterogeneous network handovers
     841
     842What are next steps?   [[BR]]
     843 * Better define proposed configurations 1) and 2) (due 11/15/12)  [[BR]]
     844 * Review with other interested projects  [[BR]]
     845 * Understand proposed Multiple Base-Station Mgmt Srvc and  Data-Path GW Srvc, and how they could be used in the implementation  [[BR]]
     846 * Understand how Yellow Nodes could be used in the implementation  [[BR]]
     847 * Understand how Android handsets could be used in the implementation  [[BR]]
     848 * Consider potential uses of WiScape Measurement Framework  [[BR]]
     849 * With other projects, define a workplan  (due 12/15/12)  [[BR]]

    792852=== 4.5)  Mobility/handover/dual-homing plans ===
     
    817877  * One design to serve all needs  [[BR]]
    818878  * Approximate cost:  $800 - $1500  [[BR]]
    819   * Need to refine design to balance functionality and cost   [[BR]]
    820   * Rutgers WINLAB has parts list, will order parts and assemble  [[BR]]
    821   * Rutgers WINLAB plans to deliver to sites by 1/15/13  [[BR]]
    822   * Start now:  what nodes are needed at which sites  [[BR]]
     879
     880What are next steps?   [[BR]]
     881  * Working with other projects, refine design to balance functionality and cost, and decide what nodes are needed at which sites   [[BR]]
     882  * Order parts (due 11/15/12)  [[BR]]
     883  * Assemble and deliver to sites  (due 1/15/13)  [[BR]]
     884  * Can a few of the current yellow nodes be delivered to sites right away with OMF/OML and new WiMAX RF AggMgr?  [[BR]]
