Proactive Resource Allocation

Proactive handover, in which mobile nodes attempt to determine the best time and place to handover to local networks, has been studied in the context of new architectures such as the Y-Comm Framework. This research has yielded techniques to calculate the Time Before Vertical Handover and the Network Dwell Time, for any given network topology. However, by knowing Time Before Vertical Handover and Network Dwell Time for mobile nodes as they move around, it is also possible to radically improve channel allocation and resource management in network infrastructure such as base-stations, relays, etc. This should greatly enhance the overall efficiency of the system including the physical and medium access control layers of mobile networks, such as LTE. The aim of this project is to develop analytical models and algorithms to address this issue in several mobile environments including Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks.
