Radio Aware Routing: Enabling Communications on the Move
A comprehensive look at how mission-critical information can be shared in a highly-dynamic mobile environment.
Ad hoc networks are emerging to deliver IP-based voice, video, and data to users operating beyond the reach of traditional fixed-network infrastructures. Ad hoc networking offers compelling advantages in many environments, but there are still some challenges. Foremost among these challenges, is the need to efficiently merge IP routing and mobile radio technologies.
Cisco Mobile Ready Net is a solution architecture that defines Cisco's vision for the mobile network of the future - a network that continuously adapts, enabling people to connect and communicate how, when, and where they need to, without relying on pre-defined fixed infrastructure.
In 2007, Cisco delivered the industry's first Radio Aware Routing implementation for the Cisco 3200 Series Rugged Integrated Services Routers and Cisco 2800 Series and 3800 Series Integrated Services Routers. Cisco IOS Software has been enhanced to take full advantage of the metric and status information offered by RFC 4938-compliant radios. RFC 4938 provides an effective, cross-layer mechanism for communicating radio network status to IP routers. Cisco has partnered with major radio vendors to facilitate the radio-side implementations of this industry standard. The Cisco Radio Aware Routing solution allows network-based applications and information to be quickly and reliably transported over directional radio links. Fast convergence and optimal route selection help ensure delivery of mission-critical, delay-sensitive traffic.
Cisco Mobile Ready Net is the platform for information sharing and collaboration with services including Cisco Radio Aware Routing.
