Benjamin Abarbanel, Boeing

Benjamin Abarbanel holds a BS degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Maryland. Ben has 25 years of data networking experience at General Electric, Sprint, Alcatel, Marconi, some startups, and now at Boeing. Throughout his career, he has held a variety of product development positions in developing small- to large-scale IP routers, as well as frame relay, and ATM switches. He has been involved in developing and deploying various routing and network-related protocols such as BGP, ISIS, OSPF, MPLS, frame relay, ATM, SNMP, and others. For several years, Ben has been an active member in the IETF Inter-Domain Working Group and contributed to a number of Internet-Drafts. His recent focus has been to develop and deploy the IP mobility solutions for inflight applications for ConneXion by Boeing.
Abstract: Traditional approaches to IP mobility target host mobility, rather than mobile networks per se. Providing internet access on mobile platforms where hosts (which may number in the hundreds) remain relatively stationary with regards to the platform presents a set of problems that has not been addressed by traditional IP mobility solutions.

This presentation describes a technique that allows intercontinental mobility of networks aboard aircraft that does not require either any modifications to the TCP/IP protocol stacks of the hosts on board the aircraft, or interaction from the end-user of this device. Mobility is accomplished by means of selective advertising and withdrawing prefixes at satellite earth stations as aircraft transit the globe. This topic will be of interest to all service providers, as our actions impact the global routing table.
