We review the problem of network mobility and internetworking between heterogeneous data networks and present an approach to the integration of WLAN and cellular networks based on loose coupling and the use of emerging mobility protocols. The handoff performance of such an approach is studied, at the network and transport levels, in a realistic scenario along with the impact on global performance of transport protocols. Finally, a method of eliminating any packet loss at the network layer during handoff is presented and evaluated.

Abstract

We review the problem of network mobility and internetworking between heterogeneous data networks and present an approach to the integration of WLAN and cellular networks based on loose coupling and the use of emerging mobility protocols. The handoff performance of such an approach is studied, at the network and transport levels, in a realistic scenario along with the impact on global performance of transport protocols. Finally, a method of eliminating any packet loss at the network layer during handoff is presented and evaluated.
