Providing Scalable and Deployable Addressing in Third Generation Cellular Networks

Abstract
Over the past few years, information technology

has changed the way we live, work, and communicate

with each other. The two outstanding

trends of Internet and cellular telephony growth

will now enter a new phase when the two technologies

converge into 2.5 and 3G networks. The

success of cellular telephony is due to the mobility

factor, and the success of the Internet is due

to its architecture, which allows a multitude of

services to use the same simple infrastructure.

The rollout of these networks has already started

around the world, but there are still outstanding

issues that are essential to resolve if the technology

Over the past few years, information technology

has changed the way we live, work, and communicate

with each other. The two outstanding

trends of Internet and cellular telephony growth

will now enter a new phase when the two technologies

converge into 2.5 and 3G networks. The

success of cellular telephony is due to the mobility

factor, and the success of the Internet is due

to its architecture, which allows a multitude of

services to use the same simple infrastructure.

The rollout of these networks has already started

around the world, but there are still outstanding

issues that are essential to resolve if the technology

is to be a success. One crucial issue is the

address space limitation of IPv4 and its impact

on cellular network scalability. To date, there

have been a number of proposals on how to alleviate

this problem. However, as we discuss in

this article, these solutions will not meet the

demands of the mobile Internet in that they will

either not scale satisfactorily or severely limit the

services that can be deployed. We therefore

introduce a new solution that will scale satisfactorily

while preserving the Internet model of

catering for a multitude of services. (Less)
