This article presents field evaluation results of an IP-based
architecture for heterogeneous environments, covering
UMTS-like TD-CDMA (Time Division-Code Division
Multiple Access) wireless access technology, wireless and
wired LANs, that has been developed under the aegis of the
IST Moby Dick project. The architecture treats all
transmission capabilities as basic physical and data-link
layers, and attempts to replace all higher-level tasks by IP-
based strategies. The Moby Dick architecture incorporates
mobile-IPv6, fast handover, AAA-control (Authentication,
Authorization, Accounting), Charging and Quality of
Service. The architecture allows for an optimized control
on the radio link layer resources. The Moby Dick
architecture has been implemented and was evaluated on
field trials with multiple services.
