Abstract [en]

In the Swedish Walkstation project a device for mobile hosts and base stations is realized by the same kind of hardware but with different kinds of communication software. This device, called MINT (Mobile IP Router), consists mainly of three parts, one for the connection to the host or backbone net (Ethernet), one for connecting to wireless LANs (radio or infrared), and a processing part for computing the communication protocols. This device serves as more than a mobile modem, i.e., it actually routes packets over potentially multiple paths with varying connectivity and quality. By using Ethernet as an input channel, it should not be necessary to install special purpose wiring dedicated to mobile communication. Instead the existing network, which normally is globally available, is used to select suitable sites for base stations. To realize a large scale field trial the new router must be low cost, small in size, and have a low power consumption while offering high performance. The current phase of the project involves building a 68030 based router with multiple interfaces, including as host interfaces: SCSI, Ethernet, serial, parallel; and as wireless interfaces: IR, microwave-radio, or a-second Ethernet (supported for software development).
