Abstract

The Media Independent Handover (MIH) architecture is designed to facilitate the signaling and enable seamless handovers in heterogeneous networks. In this paper, we propose a solution using the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) to efficiently carry MIH messages. The solution uses SCTP s multihoming and multistreaming capabilities along with cross-layer information available through the MIH.  We analyze the performance of the proposed solution for various packet loss conditions.
