Abstract

A Personal Distributed Environment (PDE) is a personal communications concept designed for future mobile communications. In a single PDE, there exist several Sub-networks hosting devices located across the infrastructure, which will inter-work with one another through the coordination of a Device Management Entity (DME). Some of these Sub-networks are fixed and some are mobile. One of the issues concerning the Mobile Sub-networks in a PDE is the convergence and de-convergence of Mobile Sub-networks. In this paper a comparison is made between two approaches proposed to handle the convergence and de-convergence of Mobile Sub-networks by use of a detailed simulation model.
