Previous work on mobility management in data networks have mainly dealt with solutions regarding mobility of individual hosts. Various networks layer and transport layer solutions have been developed. However, recently there has been strong interest in finding solutions for networks in motion, such as networks in an aircraft, train or ship to allow ubiquitous connectivity. As they move, rather than handing off individual hosts on such a network, it is more efficient to handover the networks between access points. This results in the handoff being transparent to the hosts and less control traffic in the resource challenged wireless networks. The talk with provide an overview of the network layer based solution being developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force and compare with the end-to-end based solution (SINEMO) being developed at University of Oklahoma in conjunction with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration for on networks in motion. The application of networks in motion will be illustrated for both terrestrial and space environment.

Short Bio:
Mohammed Atiquzzaman (Senior Member, IEEE) obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Electronics from the University of Manchester (UK) in 1984 and 1987, respectively. He joined as an assistant professor in 1987 and was later promoted to senior lecturer and associate professor in 1995 and 1997, respectively. Since 2003, he has been a professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Oklahoma. His current research interests are in areas of transport protocols, wireless and mobile networks, ad hoc networks, satellite networks, Quality of Service, and optical communications. His research has been funded by National Science Foundation (NSF), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and U.S. Air Force. He is the co-author of the book “Performance of TCP/IP over ATM networks” and has over 250 refereed publications, most of which can be accessed at
