Abstract
(EN)
In accordance with some embodiments, a network may enable WiFi and WiMAX internetworking, such that a mobile node may move between the networks. This may be facilitated by assigning the same home agent and home address to a mobile node in both networks during authentication. In one embodiment, the assignment may be done by a server, such as an authentication, authorization, accounting server. A wireless gateway may control access by mobile nodes to the Internet. For example, the wireless gateway may intercept messages from a mobile node that wishes to access an Internet site and the wireless gateway can check whether the node is authorized to access the Internet.

Conformément à certains modes de réalisation de l'invention, un réseau peut permettre une interconnexion entre des réseaux WiFi et WiMAX de telle manière qu'un nœud mobile puisse se déplacer entre les réseaux. Cela peut être facilité en affectant le même agent de départ et la même adresse de départ à un nœud mobile dans les deux réseaux pendant l'authentification. Dans un mode de réalisation, l'affectation peut être effectuée par un serveur, tel qu'un serveur d'authentification, d'autorisation et de gestion de compte. Une passerelle sans fil peut contrôler l'accès à l'internet effectué par les nœuds mobiles. Par exemple, la passerelle sans fil peut intercepter des messages provenant d'un nœud mobile souhaitant accéder à un site internet et la passerelle sans fil peut vérifier si le nœud a l'autorisation d'accéder à internet.
