Cross-Layer Handoff Management Algorithm on Heterogeneous Wireless Networks

Thazin Ei and Wang Furong

Among heterogeneous wireless networks for achieving seamless vertical handoff with required QoS we propose cross layer handoff management algorithm that performs the better handoff in network layer (layer 3) with the aid of link layer (layer 2) information. Since some networks are overlapped each other on heterogeneous wireless networks, Mobile Terminal (MT) may be possible to move to many networks. Among these overlapped networks, our algorithm is developed with the aid of Global Positioning System (GPS) that can trace the position and direction of the Mobile Terminal (MT). Using GPS and layer 2 information we decrease the probability of false handoff initiation that results wastage resources and also increases the load on network.
