Executive Summary

The main objective of the future networks is to provide users with always best connectivity through available different access networks. Wireless convergence has emerged as a multidimensional concept that combines networks, applications, user interfaces and management, which aimed at supporting voice, data and multimedia over IP-based networks. In this paper, the authors model the end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) provisioning mechanisms in the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access networks (WiMAX) interworking network.
