Supporting L3 Femtocell Mobility Using the MOBIKE Protocol
Keywords: femtocell architecture, mobile femtocell, MOBIKE, IKEv2, IPsec.
Femtocells can be used to improve the indoor coverage and bandwidth of 3G cellular networks in homes and buildings. They are designed to be placed in a fixed location. However, their use would also be interesting in mobile environments such as public transportation systems. This paper studies the mobility limitations at the layer 3 and suggests an approach to support mobility on femtocell networks. This solution employs the protocols already defined in the femtocell architecture, minimizing thus the impact on it.
