Abstract: Internet capable mobile or portable devices are already a modern commodity while it is becoming all the more common that such devices are hosts to more than one wireless interface. The aim of this paper is to show that a mobile user may make best use of this property by using multiple wireless interfaces simultaneously. This would incline that the mobile user can distribute active flows across the available wireless interfaces and is able to seamlessly transfer them between the wireless interfaces in mid-session without interruption. Then, it addresses the realization of multiple access interface management and flow mobility with existing protocols, while discussing shortcomings of each. Finally, it shows the experimental results obtained using one protocol extension, based on Mobile IP, called Filters for Mobile IP.
