Mobility Prediction for Mobile Agent-Based Service Continuity in the Wireless Internet
New challenging deployment scenarios are integrating mobile devices with limited and heterogeneous capabilities that roam among wireless access localities during service provisioning. This calls for novel middleware solutions not only to support different forms of mobility and connectivity in wired-wireless integrated networks, but also to perform personalized service reconfiguration/adaptation depending on client characteristics and in response to changes of wireless access locality. The paper proposes the adoption of Mobile Agent (MA) proxies working at the wired-wireless network edges to support the personalized access of limited wireless clients to their needed resources on the fixed network. In particular, the paper focuses on how to predict device mobility between IEEE 802.11 cells in a portable lightweight way, with no need of external global positioning systems. In fact, we claim that mobility prediction is crucial to maintain service continuity: MA-based proxies can migrate in...
