Abstract

The unprecedented proliferation of wireless networking services and products has taken the notion of hotspots a step further to accommodate "mobile hotspots". The deployment of hotspots in trains, ships, planes, buses etc. would certainly change the way we travel. These moving hotspots would potentially contain a large number of devices requiring global connectivity. In such situations employing one device namely a Mobile Router for the mobility management of the entire network would be a lucrative solution in terms of performance and costs. Such an architecture has been proposed and standardized by the IETF's Network Mobility Working Group [1]. In this paper we present our implementation of a mobile hotspot using a Mobile Router architecture and give initial results on our performance study. Further we present our preliminary results of incorporating handoff and routing optimizations on our mobile hotspot.
