As the wireless communications technologies evolve dramatically, the recent research focus has shifted to the development of Furth-Generation (4G) mobile systems. Instead of developing a new uniform standard for all wireless communications systems, 4G communication networks strive to seamlessly integrate various existing wireless communication technologies. One of the major challenges in this migration is to realize seamless handoffs among various communications systems with small handoff latency and packet loss.
