Description of the Company:

ipUnplugged is a company developing IP mobility products for the mobile business community. Our Mobile Service Routers, client software and service management systems form a secure Mobile VPN system that allows business users to roam transparently beyond the confines of private networks. As part of this effort, ipUnplugged would like to conduct research of applications that are well-suited, and not so well-suited, for networks based on mobile IP and adhoc networks.

Industry of Company:

Number of Internships:



The Diploma Thesis

Category of Diploma Thesis:

·  Science/Technology

Field of Study of the Applicant:

·  Computer science

Description of the Topic:

Mobile IP and adhoc networks allow the mobile user to keep his IP address while moving. This is particularly beneficial for multimedia and peer-to-peer applications. The master thesis will make a survey of available applications in this area and make practical

experiments in the lab of ipUnplugged. In contrast, there are also applications that rely on the topology given by the IP address. For these applications, Mobile IP and Adhoc routing may be harmful. One example of such applications is the web performance optimizer called FreeFlow from Akamai. The master thesis will also

describe the aspects of running such an application on top of Mobile IP and Adhoc networks as well as give recommendations in order to minimize the negative effects.
