ABSTRACT The wireless mesh network (WMN) has emerged recently as a promising technology for next-generation wireless networking. In WMNs, it is important to provide high quality multimedia service in a flexible and intelligent manner. To address this issue in this article, we study the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for wireless voice over IP (VoIP) applications. Especially, we investigate the technical challenges in WMN VoIP systems and propose a design of an enhanced SIP proxy server to overcome them. An analysis of the signaling process and a study of simulation results have shown the advantages of our proposed approach.

    ABSTRACT: Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) over wireless mesh networks (WMNs) is becoming more and more popular due to its significant cost advantage, higher flexibility and wide coverage. One of the most basic requirements of VoIP is that it must provide privacy and security protection for VoIP clients. Unfortunately, little effort is spent on this area. In this paper, we focus on the privacy security of session initiation protocol (SIP) and propose a privacy-aware SIP called PA-SIP to enhance the VoIP privacy security. PA-SIP extends the SIP and applies a subjective logic based reputation mechanism to detect and isolate the insider malicious nodes. Finally, we analyze the PA-SIP in terms of security and performance.

    ABSTRACT: The Evolved Packet System (EPS) is standardized to support a common IP-based core network with heterogeneous radio accesses in the latest 3GPP release. In the EPS, the Policy and Charging Control (PCC) framework provides dynamic policy control combined with real-time charging management. Long core network signaling for PCC degrades session continuity performance during handover. In this paper, we investigate the handover for an EPS session. Based on the results, we propose a proactive scheme along with a user mobility tracking model to improve session continuity. More specifically, our proposed scheme attempts to reduce PCC reauthorization signaling delay during the handover procedure. Then, we formulate a Markov process to model the user mobility pattern and to derive the session continuity probability. Numerical results show that our scheme can significantly keep the session continuity at a user acceptable level even when the mobility pattern is high. We also provide guidelines for operators to set up the network configuration parameters according to various traffic conditions. Copyright © 2011 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    ABSTRACT: Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service has been a very popular and important application over the Internet. Recently, wireless mesh networks (WMNs) has been considered as a good solution for VoIP services due to low cost and convenience, easy deployment and larger area coverage. However, many relevant security issues have been raised for integrating IP Telephony into the existent applications and system infrastructure. In this paper, we propose a trust degree-based dynamic model for securing the VoIP over WMNs, in which each node maintains trust degree for other nodes and applies the trust degree to evaluate their trustworthiness. We also validate the performance of our model with simulation results
