Study on Transport Layer Handover using SCTP

By L. Budzisz, R. Ferrús and F. Casadevall


Abstract—In this paper we perform initial study of SCTP performance in order to evaluate the idea of soft handover in the transport layer. We discuss two different aspects: the influence of the point between two adjacent Access Points to trigger the handover, and a set of triggering rules based on radio signal strength. From the experiments on triggering rules it was shown that the best trade-off between average throughput and signalling overhead is achieved for a slow add-IP and fast change-IP
