Heterogeneous network access on devices with one or more network interfaces
AuthorNicoara, Angela; Rahmati, Ahmad; Shepard, Clayton; Zhong, Lin; Singh, Jatinder Pal
A method for managing TCP flows in a mobile device adapted to connect to two or more wireless network types includes enabling connection to a number of networks of different types at the mobile device and executing a plurality of Internet-enabled applications on the mobile device. Each such application forms an existing TCP connection over a first one of the wireless networks. The routing table is modified such that any additional TCP connection will be created on a second one of the wireless networks. The device determines that a termination condition has occurred and in response to determining that the termination condition has occurred, renders an interface on the mobile device to the first one of the wireless networks inoperative.
