Abstract

Mobile health (mHealth) has been receiving more and more attention recently as an emerging paradigm that brings together the evolution of advanced mobile and wireless communication technologies with the vision of “connected health” aiming to deliver the right care in the right place at the right time. However, there are several cardinal problems hampering the successful and widespread deployment of mHealth services from the mobile networking perspective. On one hand, issues of continuous wireless connectivity and mobility management must be solved in future heterogeneous mobile Internet architectures with ever growing traffic demands. On the other hand, Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) must be guaranteed in a reliable, robust and diagnostically acceptable way. In this paper we propose a context- and content-aware, jointly optimized, distributed dynamic mobility management architecture to cope with the future traffic explosion and meet the medical QoS/QoE requirements in varying environments.
