Hello, I am a technical consultant for a software company and I�ve been given a large project to design and write technical documentations. Having come from a non-IP background I�ve been put into a networking role. Nonetheless, I would like to know how to best go after the design project. My client private bus company has decided to provide high-speed internet, to its passengers of its 1000 buses which has wireless LAN and mobile routers, 2Mbps 3G wireless links connects to different fixed IP routers in the bus.
I would like to know few issues:
  • How can the new �internet draft� network mobility support requirements can provide us extended mobile IP solution to address their routing issues? And other performance issues regarding this area? What advantage can this bring in overall?
  • Routing issues? Performance? Routing overhead?
  • How the routing of data packets is achieved between fixed internet servers and mobile users in the bus, using the latest internet draft proposed solution.
  • How can route optimization technique for network mobility so that packets from fixed internet servers travel directly to the mobile routers in bus?

  • Any help would help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
