Consumers want it, businesses are demanding it. The migration of Internet services to a mobile environment is inevitable. But while the ability to be on the go and connected to the Internet sets the stage for increased efficiency and productivity, many technical challenges associated with user mobility and wireless connectivity remain.Mobile Internet: Enabling Technologies and Services addresses these challenges and thoroughly examines the cutting-edge technologies designed to meet them. Eminent academic and industry professionals explain the mobile and wireless network technologies that make mobile connectivity possible, including their respective characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages. Much of the book focuses on the mobility management techniques so necessary when the point of network attachment can change constantly. Macro-mobility and micro-mobility management protocols receive extensive attention, as do security concerns. Other key topics include interworking between WLAN and cellular networks, Internet access over WLANs, over GPRS and over satellites, multicasting, quality-of-service provisions, header compression schemes, and the problems inherent in video streaming over wireless IP networks.Little on our technological horizon is as certain or holds as much promise as the mobile Internet. This book offers a unique opportunity to become thoroughly acquainted with its context, services, and technologies.
