Abstract

This paper discusses aspects of network-layer support required for extending ATM connectivity to mobile terminals. An architecture for incorporating mobile terminals within a ATM network has been presented in [4, 5, 6, 9, 10]. Analogous to the protocols needed to support terminal mobility in (connectionless) IP networks, viz. Mobile-IP [1], protocols are needed to support mobility in connection-oriented ATM networks. In contrast to IP, the connection-oriented nature of ATM requires location resolution prior to establishing a connection with a mobile terminal, and needs handoff protocols to support dynamic re-routing of active connections as terminals migrate from one radio port to another.
