Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper proposes a seamless handover scheme for RSVP over 3G networks. An Address Proxy Agent (APA) is proposed to be implemented in the radio network controllers (RNC) to provide a residual address for the mobile host (MR) with RSVP reservation during the handover process. The principle of this approach is to provide a residual address for MH that is valid in radio network sub-system (RNS) and traceable back to MH latest location. When MH send a packet upstream the APA will replace the packet source address with the residual address before releasing the packet to the rest of its RSVP path. And when RNC receives a return RSVP packet destined to this residual address the APA will replace this residual address back to the source address and forward this packet to the current location. This approach confines the impacts of a handover to the local RNS yet maintain PSVP path as MH moves from one cell to another.
