The Challenges of Provisioning Real-Time Services in Wireless Internet

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The issues involved in supporting real-time wireless Internet services go beyond the problem of forwarding packets to
the correct destination of a mobile host. These issues include handover latency, availability of network resources after
moving, and a proper charging and accounting infrastructure. Through a survey of current research in these areas, we
discuss various concerns of integrating mobility, Quality of Service, and service charging techniques. Finally, we
identify some open issues for future study.
