A Review of Mobility Management in Integrated UMTS and WLAN Networks

Maushumi Barooah, Diganta Kumar Pathak, and Ishita Roy Karmakar

Abstract—In today’s age of Next Generation Internet there have been a plethora of diversified overlapping networks where each of these communication technologies are optimized to provide user specific services and Quality of Service(QoS) parameters. The main objective of next generation networks focus at high bandwidth and high mobility. There are WiFi hotspots (WLAN) providing high data rates within smaller areas and UMTS networks providing larger coverage areas with low data rates. These two complementary networks can be combined to quench the thirst for ubiquitous communication enabling the smart mobile user to roam seamlessly between these technologies for best possible services. To ensure Always Best Connectivity, one of the main short comings to be addressed is efficient handoff management and there are a lot of works already published addressing various issues of efficient handoff management till date. This paper provides a comprehensive detail of different handoff management strategies reported so far in a systematic manner and also throws light on a particular scheme of handoff management between UMTS and WLAN providing QoS to the mobile users.
