We assume that when the RSS is below a certain interface sensitivity level, the MN is unable to communicate with the WLAN Access Point (AP), or WiMAX Base Station (BS) and threshold value is the minimum level of RSS required for the active application running on a MN to perform satisfactorily during the process of handoff [25].
<p>The new troubleshooting tool works with the AirDefense server software, and a network of dedicated wireless RF sensors (or a dedicated radio on a multi-radio Motorola WLAN access point).
RADIUS MAC filtering will perform a database lookup on the RADIUS server by sending the hardware ID (MAC address) of the mobile device to the server in an access-request message prior to allowing the device to associate to the WLAN access point. The RADIUS server will then send back either an access-accept or access-reject message to the WLAN, indicating whether or not the device should be allowed onto the enterprise WLAN.
