Executive Summary

The main objective of this paper is to evaluate the conditions and restrictions under which seamless multimedia Quality of Service (QoS) provision across 4G is possible. One vital component for the provision of seamless multimedia session continuity is the QoS consistency across these heterogeneous networks. This is vital indeed because without QoS consistency the multimedia session will experience different QoS levels in these network domains and hence seamless continuity will not be doable. Hence QoS consistency turns to be a quite challenging issue. In this paper, power management algorithms are developed to control the coverage of access points and base stations to handle dynamic changes in mobile resources.
