The commercial success of cellular networks, combined with advances in digital electronics, signal processing, and telecommunications research have lead to the design of next generation wireless systems. The next generation wireless system is a system of globally available, wireless multimedia networks that are anticipated to deliver service to a mobile computer terminal "anywhere at anytime."
Telecommunication service providers have recently begun to offer ubiquitous access to packetised data. As a result, the Internet is not limited to computers that are physically connected but is also available to users that are equipped with mobile devices. This ubiquitous access fuels the growth and the usage of the Internet even further, and thus the realization of dynamic Internet. With the realization of the dynamic Internet, increasing support is needed for Internet protocol (IP) and transmission control protocol (TCP) over wireless/mobile networks.
