paper on end to end multihoming
We extend the mobile network architecture protocol "LIN6", to
support multihoming, and design a new Application Program
Interface (API) that enables an application to support
multihoming. The LIN6's addressing architecture makes it
possible to support what we call end-to-end multihoming without
any inconsistency. In end-to-end multihoming, a fault-tolerant
connection can be achieved relying not on routers but on the
pair of end-nodes only. The new APIs make it easy to write
an application that supports multihoming and robust connections.
The extension to the LIN6 protocol and the new APIs give the
capability of multihoming to the LIN6 protocol.
