Abstract

While the wireless local area network (WLAN) has been the most common technology for static indoor wireless services, its applications has limited performance in seamless mobile services because of its inherent static service transaction mechanisms. In this paper, we propose a mobility provisioning handoff method called dual cross-linking method to support seamless services in WLAN. A mobile node (MN) has two wireless interfaces and access points (APs) are controlled by a mobility management (MM) agent. In the area where the service areas of two adjacent APs are overlapped, one wireless interface is used to maintain the wireless services while the other interface searches for a next available AP. After finding a new AP, MN forms dual communication path from the MM to the MN so that the MN is ready to move to a newly found AP service area without service loss. Once the MN is moved to a new AP area, the first interface is disconnected leaving only one interface connection. It was proved that the proposed method can effectively reduce the handoff delay and packet loss through the analysis.
