MIH: State of Art and a Proposed Future Direction in the Heterogeneous Wireless Networks

Yass K. Salih, Ong Hang See and Salman Yussof

The handover between different access technologies is considered as one of the most challenging tasks in wireless networks. Vertical handover can achieve the concept of next generation networks in terms of the wireless networking environment, where any service can be optimized and apparently delivered at any time. To achieve seamless handover between heterogeneous wireless networks a new mechanism is needed to work in parallel with IEEE 802.21 standard. The current solution is suitable for wired networks. However, it has a limitation in fourth generation wireless networks like: WiMAX and LTE. The development of these networks will provide more services to the user. On the other hand, new parameters must be considered in the handover process. This paper discusses solutions for achieving seamless vertical handover between different mobile technologies. This review investigated various enhancement of Media Independent Handover (MIH). The results of this investigation can be used in new researches in mobility management protocols and cross-layer techniques. The new research will provide effectual collaboration among assorted wireless networks and therefore enables optimized seamless service mobility to the end-users.
