A guide to secured and seamless mobility among heterogeneous access networks such as WiMAX, CDMA and GPRS This book shows how an efficient system of optimized mobility management can improve the quality of service in existing forms of mobile communication. It provides a theoretical approach to mobility management, as well as developing the model for systems optimization, including practical case studies using network layer and mobility layer protocols in different deployment scenarios.& This book will provide a common framework for mobility management that considers the theoretical and practical aspects of system optimization. & & & & & & & & & Defines and discusses a common set of optimization methodologies and their application to all mobility protocols independent of IPv4 and IPv6. & & & & & & & & & Applies these technologies in the context of various layers: MAC layer 802.11 basedmobility, WiMax, CDMA, SIP, HIP, VoIP, and many more. & & & & & & & & & Provides a thorough analysis of the required steps during a mobility event such as discovery, network selection, configuration, authentication, security association, encryption, binding update, and media direction

Author Biography

Dr. Ashutosh Dutta

Dr. Ashutosh Dutta obtained his Ph.D. in EE from Columbia University, M.S. in Computer Science from NJIT, USA and BSEE from NIT, Rourkela, India. As a seasoned mobility and security architect and an accomplished networking and computer science expert with 20-plus years experience, Ashutosh directed multiple IT operations, led the research and development for leading global technology corporations and top university and has in-depth expertise in developing and implementing research, analysis and design initiatives.

His career spanning 25 years includes LMTS (Lead Member of Technical Staff) at AT&T, NJ; CTO Wireless at NIKSUN, NJ; Senior Scientist in Telcordia Technologies, NJ; CRF Director at Columbia University, NY and Computer Engineer with TATA Motors, India. Ashutosh’s research interests include wireless Internet, multimedia signaling, mobility management, 4G networks, IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystems), VoIP and session control protocols.  He has published more than 80 conference, journal papers and Internet drafts, three book chapters, and has given tutorials in mobility management at various conferences. Ashutosh has 19 issued security and mobility related US patents.

Ashutosh is a senior member of IEEE and ACM. He has served as an IEEE volunteer and leader at the section, region, chapter, society, MGA, and EAB level. Ashutosh is recipient of the 2009 IEEE Region 1, IEEE MGA and 2010 IEEE-USA Leadership Awards.

Prof. Henning Schulzrinne

Prof. Henning Schulzrinne, Levi Professor of Computer Science at Columbia University, received his Ph.D.  from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Massachusetts.  He was an MTS at AT&T Bell Laboratories and an associate department head at GMD-Fokus (Berlin), before joining the Computer Science and Electrical Engineering departments at Columbia University.  He served as chair of the Department of Computer Science from 2004 to 2009, as Engineering Fellow at the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2010 and 2011, and as Chief Technology Officer at the FCC since 2012.

He has published more than 250 journal and conference papers, and more than 70 Internet RFCs.  Protocols co-developed by him, such as RTP, RTSP and SIP, are now Internet standards, used by almost all Internet telephony and multimedia applications.  His research interests include Internet multimedia systems, ubiquitous computing, and mobile systems.

He is a Fellow of the IEEE, has received the New York City Mayor's Award for Excellence in Science and Technology, the VON Pioneer Award, TCCC service award, the IEEE Region 1 William Terry Award for Lifetime Distinguished Service to IEEE and the UMass Computer Science Outstanding Alumni recognition.
