Analysis of Layer 2 and 3 Hand off Techniques for Train Based Mobile Networks When Used With VoIP Enabled Client Devices

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Mobile device technology is developing at an extremely rapid pace. With the developments in the 3GPP Generic Access Network (GAN) technologies cell phones will soon transition seamlessly from cell networks to Wi-Fi networks in hot spots and residences. Currently work is progressing rapidly with various cell phone manufacturers releasing products that have this capability. With this capability and the implementation of wireless hot spots on mobile platforms such as planes, trains, and ships an area of research has become apparent in examining the uplink handoff processes for these mobile networks that will allow for voice quality communication from the mobile network. This paper’s ultimate focus will deal specifically with roaming systems able to support voice traffic on the mobile network of a passenger train. (As cited in abstract.)
