TL;DR: An algorithm is designed to first scan the channels 1, 6 and 11, if present under the next Access Point (AP), to reduce the scanning delay, and introduces pre-authentication mechanism, which will effectively reduce the message processing delay.
Abstract: Presently, IEEE 802.11 based wireless local area networks (WLAN) have been widely deployed for business and personal applications. The main issue regarding wireless network technology is handoff or hand over management. When a mobile station (MS) moves outside the range of its current access point (AP) it needs to perform a link layer handover. This causes data loss and interruption in communication. According to IEEE 802.11, link layer2 (L2) handoff is performed in three phases – scanning, authentication and re-association. Scanning process causes 90% of the total handoff delay. Throughout the last few years, plenty of researches had been done to reduce the hand off delay by reducing the scanning delay. In this paper, we propose to reduce handoff latency for IEEE 802.11 wireless networks with Neighbor Graphs (NG) pre-scanning mechanisms. IEEE 802.11 uses 11 channels of which the channels 1, 6 and 11 do not mutually overlap. So these channels are expected to have a lower carrier-to-interference ratio (CI) compared to other channels under the same base station, which increases the channel‟s availability during handoff. Based on the NG prescanning mechanism, when handoff criterions have been met, we design an algorithm to first scan the channels 1, 6 and 11, if present under the next Access Point (AP), to reduce the scanning delay. We also introduce pre-authentication mechanism, which will effectively reduce the message processing delay.

TL;DR: An algorithm to first determine the Access Point under whose coverage area the Mobile Station (MS) would enter, then scanning the channels 1, 6 and 11, if present under the next Access Point (AP), to reduce the scanning delay is designed and pre-authentication mechanism is introduced, which will effectively reduce the message processing delay.
Abstract: IEEE 802.11b networks are becoming more ubiquitous. While roaming through access points, a Mobile Station is often required to perform a link layer handover. This mechanism causes connection losses and breaks in time-sensitive communication, especially if a network layer handover follows the link layer handover. In this paper, we propose to reduce handoff latency for IEEE 802.11 wireless networks with Neighbor Graphs (NG) pre-scanning mechanisms and using a GPS based server which predetermines the next probable AP using three formulated geometry based mathematical techniques. IEEE 802.11 uses 11 channels of which the channels 1, 6 and 11 do not mutually overlap. As they are non-overlapping, the channels are expected to have a lower carrier-to-interference ratio (CI) compared to the other channels present under the same base station, which increases the channel‟s availability during handoff. When handoff criterion have been met, we design an algorithm to first determine the Access Point (AP) under whose coverage area the Mobile Station (MS) would enter, then scanning the channels 1, 6 and 11, if present under the next Access Point (AP), to reduce the scanning delay. We also introduce pre-authentication mechanism, which will effectively reduce the message processing delay.

TL;DR: This paper introduces a prescanning mechanism in which an STA starts scanning before it needs actual handoff, and simulation results show that the proposed method reduces the handoff latency effectively.
Abstract: Due to rapid growth in IEEE 802.11 based Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN), handoff has become a burning issue. A mobile station (MS) requires handoff when it travels out of the coverage area of its current access point (AP) and tries to associate with another AP. But handoff delays provide a serious barrier for such services to be made available to mobile platforms. Throughout the last few years there has been plenty of research aimed towards reducing the handoff delay incurred in the various levels of wireless communication. In this paper, based on Neighbor Graph Cache (NGC), we introduce a prescanning mechanism in which an STA starts scanning before it needs actual handoff. The simulation results show that the proposed method reduces the handoff latency effectively.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors proposed a Billboard Manager based handover (BMBHO) technique using the concept of Billboard Manager (BM) proposed by Aysegul et al in 2006 but in a different way.
Abstract: Now-a-days LEO satellites have an important role in global communication system. They have some advantages over GEO & MEO satellites such as power requirement and endto-end delay is lower and it has more efficient frequency spectrum utilization between satellites and spotbeams. So in future they can be used as a replacement of modern terrestrial wireless networks. But they main problem of LEO satellites is that they have large relative speed than the speed of mobile nodes (MN) & earth. That’s why the handover occurrence is more. So the call blocking probability (Pb) and force call termination probability (Pf) is also higher. To overcome this problem several handover techniques is proposed. Here we propose Billboard Manager based handover (BMBHO) technique using the concept of Billboard Manager (BM) proposed by Aysegul et al in 2006 but in a different way. Here we reduce the scanning time significantly. Also the cost is reduced. Here we also describe how to reduce (Pf). In this paper you will find a set of simulations both for our proposed method & standard handover methods. We can find that this method is very useful by the simulation results.

TL;DR: An idea of controlling the frequency hops and hence controlled the mobility management cost of patHO-LEO and Mobile IP network is proposed.
Abstract: In low earth orbit(LEO) satellite network Mobility management is one of the key technologies. The aim of mobility management is to track where the subscribers are, allowing calls, SMS and other mobile phone services to be delivered to them. In this paper, we have proposed an idea of controlling the frequency hops and hence controlled the mobility management cost of patHO-LEO and Mobile IP network.

TL;DR: A novel geometric model of the handover is developed in the context of public safety communications but extensible also to other contexts, and the hand over failure probability is computed taking into account the different handover phases.
Abstract: Given the temporary nature of radio communications for mission critical scenarios, the existing dedicated public safety network lacks the flexibility of cutting edge technologies to leverage on packet data services. In this context, new challenges arise such as high-capacity demand and low-latency flexible backhaul connection for public safety users. In this paper, we consider a scenario in which 4G LTE radio coverage is provisioned by aerial eNodeBs installed on low-altitude platforms raised in the sky and interconnected through WiFi links. We focus our attention on the critical aspect of theThird Generation Partnership Project handover mechanism studying the handover performance using a X2 interfaces over WiFi links. We develop a novel geometric model of the handover in the context of public safety communications but extensible also to other contexts. Relying on such a model, the handover failure probability is computed taking into account the different handover phases. The coverage area of an aerial eNodeB is studied using a suitable air-to-ground propagation model, while the average handover duration is computed taking into account the delay introduced by the WiFi communication dynamics.
