Optimizing Authentication in Media Independent Handovers using IEEE 802.21



Antonio Izquierdo Manzanares, Nada T. Golmie, Richard A. Rouil


In this paper we study the performance of the authentication process in media independent handovers, and consider the impact of using IEEE 802.21 link triggers to achieve seamless mobility. We describe all interactions between the 802.21 services and the authentication in order to achieve timely and seamless handovers.
