Timer-based Bloom Filter Aggregation for Reducing Signaling Overhead in Distributed Mobility Management
Abstract— Timer-based Bloom Filter Aggregation for Reducing Signaling Overhead in Distributed Mobility Management. Distributed mobility management DMM is a promising technology to address the mobile data trafﬁc explosion problem. Since the location information of mobile < Final Year Project 2016 > nodes (MNs) are distributed in several mobility agents (MAs), DMM requires an additional mechanism to share the location information of MNs between MAs. In the literature, multicast or distributed hash table (DHT)-based sharing methods have been suggested; however they incur signiﬁcant signaling overhead owing to unnecessary location information updates under frequent handovers. To reduce the signaling overhead, we propose a timer-based Bloom ﬁlter aggregation (TBFA) scheme for distributing the location information.
