Lecture 03: Wireless Networks
January 26, 2001
In this lecture we will move up the stack to the network layer.
We will learn a basic knowledgement of wireleass PAN/LAN/WAN
as a subnetwork technology, and see how an IP layer can be constructed
on top on them. As we have discussed before, mobility management can
take place in the Internet layer (like Mobile-IP), and it can also
take place in the subnetwork layer. In this lecture we will focus
on how to handle mobility within a subnetwork.
You should read the following papers before going to class.
When you read these papers, keep the above two issues in mind,
i.e., interactions between IP and wireless PAN/LAN/WAN, and mobility
management in this layer. The first paper is only an overview
and should be fairly easy to read. The rest are more technical,
but you can skip much of the "EE" details.
One way to finish them fast is to form a small study group and
read them together.
- Please read all the required papers if you haven't done so.
