This course will examine how mobility affects networks, systems, and applications, and teach fundamental concepts as well as advanced issues in designing next generation mobile data networks. The focus will be on the higher layers of the communication stack (network through to applications). The following key concepts will be covered: protocols to deal with mobility at different layers (e.g., Mobile IP, SCTP, etc.), mobility models (e.g. Random Walk, Brownian Motion, etc.), advanced mobility prediction algorithms and applications, mobile extensions to end-to-end congestion control algorithms (e.g. Mobile TC P, Freeze TCP, etc.), and emerging mobile networking architectures, applications, and standards (e.g. vehicle to vehicle communications, on-board mobile communication for mass transit systems, etc.).
